This article looks more like an advert. Certainly the 1,500 yen back is hardly an incentive.

Posted in: IOC chief to confirm Japan's food products safe for Olympic participants See in context

I doubt they will have any issues with the food; that’ll be the positive. But, after reading an article about the rugby venues today, I would be more worried about the safety of all of the venues.

Oh and the weather. I guess it’s going to be okay because, by memory, didn’t they test the triathlon by shortening the test. At least one athlete had heatstroke (suspected).
