A planned training camp of the Chinese gymnastics squad in Japan cannot occur due to the corona pandemic.
The city of Sabae, where the Olympic team wanted to prepare for the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Tokyo, says it cannot guarantee a safe environment for the Chinese’s health.
According to TV channel NHK, China has responded with understanding.
Due to the ongoing series of corona infections, the mayor of Sabae contacted the Chinese gymnastics union last month and described the problems.
The union would then have decided to cancel the training camp. According to NHK, the drivers in Sabae are still looking to support the Chinese gymnastics team.
