Of course Olympic will be held. Tokyo Olympic will provide the hope of the world in the post covid time. Also to lift the spirit of the Tohoku people is necessary. I feel it will be the heartful Olympic.

Eriko Yamatani, known for her support of traditional gender roles, called it “ridiculous” that transgender people with male bodies say they have female hearts and want to use women’s restrooms or participate in women’s sports.
She's right. Also the thing in the lead photo is very disrespectful to women.

I am looking forward to an eco-friendly Olympic. This was my biggest concern in the lead up to these games. Well done Japan! If they need anymore empty pet bottles there plenty tossed into the local river along with other trash near my home in Osaka.
Come on Olympic!

That's good news for Tokyo and as planned will lift the spirit of the Tohoku people!

Osaka has faced the worst prejudice in Japan as a child and since becoming a tennis star due to her being a “haafu,” or half a Japanese person. She was declared to be “too sunburned” by two Japanese comedians who said she “needed some bleach.”
The Japanese noodle company Nissin acknowledged “whitewashing” Osaka in an ad that was later taken down.

I wish Naomi well. Japan also has to take some blame for her current mental state. It can't have been easy being bullied by her fellow countrymen living in Japan as a child.
In addition Naomi has faced further prejudice in Japan. She was declared to be “too sunburned” by two Japanese comedians who said she “needed some bleach.”
The Japanese noodle company Nissin acknowledged “whitewashing” Osaka in an ad that was taken down after a public outcry.
Even today most Japanese do not accept her as a "full blood" and even her successes get very little coverage alongside Japanese table tennis players and ice skaters.

SOE extension or not is inconsequential. Olympic will now be held regardless.

An arrogant John Coates doesn't represent Australia. Just as a strong Dick Pound doesn't speak for Canadians.

RIP Bob "Bozo" Fulton. Not just a Rugby League immortal but a great Australian Sportsperson. Good to his beloved Manly Sea Eagles have a big win over their arch rivals Parramatta this afternoon. The players and coaching staff would have only learned about Fulton's passing shortly before kick-off.

Par for the course for this 30 year foreign resident of Japan. So glad to be leaving for good in September.

Thousands of new coronavirus cases diagnosed across Japan today. Nearly 700 in Hokkaido, 198 in Okinawa, and many people died yesterday and in the night.
But Olympic must go on.

And at the end of the day Vaccine Czar Kono will probably be Prime Minister of Japan one day.

Not sure if it was the Aichi prefecture governor who said it on the news tonight but Aichi is trending towards 1000+ new cases a day from next week.

"In a characteristically Japanese way, we have all but brought this epidemic under control in the last month and a half. Surely, it shows the power of the Japan model."
