100 days to Tokyo

That tingling feeling in your toes isn’t a new fungal infection – it’s the Olympic spirit starting to take hold as yesterday marked 100 days until the start of the Tokyo Games. In keeping with the difficulties organisers have experienced in landing the sporting extravaganza, COVID chaos is still on their minds… It’s feared that Tokyo is on the cusp of a spike in new infections. And Japan lags behind the other developed countries when it comes to its vaccine rollout. International spectators have already been banned from attending, and it’s still unknown how many locals will be allowed in – if any. Meanwhile, the Aussie committee is gearing up – it announced viewing live sites in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth for fans to get amongst it when things kick off on 27 July.
