Tokyo Olympic organizers reduce the number of officials accompanying athletes to 41 thousand

The organizing committee of the Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games in Tokyo has decided to limit the number of officials accompanying foreign athletes to 41,000, a third of the initial number. This information was given by the head of Hidemasa Nakamura, the main operating center of the Olympic Games.

The organizing committee said in May that 59,000 foreign officials and employees would be allowed to participate in the sporting event, instead of the 141,000 initially planned.
“For those accompanying the athletes, we recalculated and fixed the number at 41,000,” Nakamura said. This is a third of the original plan. At the same time, the number of athletes will remain 19 thousand as before.

It is noteworthy that the Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo were earlier to be held in 2020, but due to the outbreak of Corona epidemic last year, they were postponed for a year. Now it is to be held from 23 July to 8 August. The Games will be held without foreign spectators, while a decision on domestic spectators is expected this month.
