The Games will be a shirt show of hiding COVID positive tests. If this had been Simone Biles, I seriously doubt we'd have heard a word about it.

Even asymptomatic Covid can weaken a person. USAG would not put her out there to risk her life, right? Right?

Half the Olympians are reportedly unvaccinated. It's going to get much worse

Of course not. I mean, it's not like they forced multiple gymnasts to compete on known broken legs.

Oh wait...

Not one single person will walk away from the Tokyo Olympics without a full-blown case of Covid.

She is between the age of 10 and 19.

Umm, are there 10 year olds on the Olympic team? Don't they have to be 16 or something?

They are all going to die and their athletic zombies will try to eat our brains  and turn us into bronies or trumpers or both.

So in the six hours it took us to clear the airport, three (?) athletes tested positive, Toyota pulled TV ads despite being a $1B IOC sponsor, and the ceremonies musical composer resigned because of monstrous past bullying of special needs classmates. Opening Ceremony is Friday.

/this is going to be a disaster of epic proportions

Cancel them already. I love seeing international sports, but so many stupid stupid leaders embraced the idea of "Open Anyways" and we are now stuck in a battle with a virus that we could have killed or controlled last year.

It's too late to cancel it. Most of the athletes are there now. Competition begins in less than 36 hours from now (softball and women's soccer). It's happening, as stupid as it is.

Well considering the news story I just read about this said 80% of the athletes going to the games are vaccinated, you're full of shiat.  (I need to find that again)

Also, we need to stop giving a crap about asymptomatic cases.  The chance of a fully vaccinated asymptomatic person can transfer the virus to another person is ridiculously tiny.  They're not a cause for concern.  We need to stop being such giant babies over this crap.  (Obviously, they're tested so frequently you need to be slightly cautious to be sure they don't EVENTUALLY get symptomatic, but for a healthy extremely fit teenager who's fully vaccinated that number is almost 0%)

The problem is that Japan as a whole is below 10% vaccinated. Tokyo is under a state of emergency because of Covid (thus, no fans). If the Games were somewhere in the US, the concerns wouldn't be as major because more people are vaccinated here. But in Japan, they just can't take any chances right now.

Apparently, the Covid positive came from an alternate to the team

Simone Biles is the only reason anyone in the United States is going to bother watching the Olympics now that Michael Phelps is retired. If she doesn't perform because of illness/injury, no one here is going to give a shiat.

So, yeah. Yeah, they would. They'd slap her on the ass and tell her to cartwheel into the sun.

You have to be 16 in the calendar year of the Olympics I believe, so you can be 15 years old and perform so long as your 16th birthday is some time this year.
