I believe it's going to be a great spectacle amid pandemic. People should stay home and enjoy watching paralympic competitions.

Everything is under a shadow.

And even this headline is remarkably disheartening and discouraging from that of Tokyo’s Priority Games:

Tokyo Olympic opening ceremony begins” July 23, 2021  8:45pm

P. Smith 5:30pm: “The Paralympics are so important that JT doesn’t have a separate section for them like it did for the Olympics.” -

Paralympics approach with the country going through a fifth virus wave.

The virus numbers are not "a wave" The only wave there has been is a "Wave" in TESTING.

Better yet, don't watch it at all. And make a note of which companies are sponsors and don't buy their products/services (e.g. Coca-Cola, SMBC, Kirin, VISA, Ajinomoto, Toyota)

Among its top medal hopes is Shingo Kuneida, the reigning world number one wheelchair men's single champion and considered one of the greatest figures in the sport.

I know nothing of paralympics but should it not say somewhere : tennis ?

Moderator: Thank you for pointing that out. Tennis has been added.
