Whose betting some draconian measures will be urged just in time for Obon. The workers don't need holidays, just keep getting in those packed trains everyday though and be good and skutle off home to sleep once you've finished earning those tax yen, don't go for a drink to relax after.

Gotta take a look at 2 GOATs: Michael Phelps and Usain Bolt. Michael Phelps still went out and competed for a silver though he had slowed down a bit in 2016. Usain Bolt still ran in the 2017 World Championships though he got 2nd in the individual race. He still went out in the relay and tore his hamstring. MJ played with the flu and Kobe played several times with a broken finger, torn ligament, achilles and back spasms.

Different generation, worlds apart from the youngsters coming through now.

@TokyoJoe, I certainly don't see that with the Japanese female athletes. They look quite amazing under the stress, and still appear cheerful, respectful and a good role model. The male athletes as well.

Well is Osaka included within your 'japanese' athletes?. She admitted that pressure threw her game off. I agree the Japanese competitors do show a mental strength that seems to be lacking in some of the foreign athletes.

No Close fitting rule for the men and wow men can be only 10cm above the knee cap but women 26 cm.

Now again, logic for that difference?

Men tend to have something in the crotch region that can hang down the extra 10-16cm. Women don't have that unless they are representing New Zealand.

Don't want so revel in somebody's loss so will say well done Osaka, unfortunately not your year. I think perhaps time to step away from tennis and assess how all of the far left political stuff you got engaged in has damaged you on court and damaged your image.

Why not of male athletes as well?

They shout about gender equality but then create rules only applied to women. It's farcical to anyone with a shred of awareness.

Boo, could this Olympics get any worse! Now we are being demonized for healthy attraction to prime specimens of the human form. What's coming next, a permanent robe around Michaelangelo's David to not offend the snowflake generation.

For someone that is not following the Olympics I gotta say congratulations because skateboarding is so frowned upon in Japan, this win is bitter sweet.

Agreed, first bit of Olympic news I've been interested in. Bet the Oyajis are so torn now.

Facebook is firmly in the far left mainstream sphere due to it's censorship of opposing opinions under the guise of 'hate speech'. There is absolutely nothing cool about that, it is the default view of mainstream media, big corporation et al. It can never be cool be censorship and infantilising it's users.

How many of you posting actually have skin in the game?

1 'skin' in the game here, my son. To answer your question I bet most of us here have children born here. So this issue is massive for all of us.

I wish the media would give racism a break for just a week or so. Just a little break without the innuendos and hints and suggestions and just bringing it up in general ad nauseam. We, the people, really could use a break.

Agreed however this is one chance when the world's media is looking at Japan to spotlight this issue. Finally something positive could come out of these awful games.

A good article however Katie Forester had to make it all about a subset of mixed heritage (Black) of course, further dividing people. All of our mixed race children will or do suffer this issue. Half Korean, Chinese or south Asian being groups that will see a fair amount of the 'ignorance' as the article puts it. All of us long time residents (tax payers) also suffer this regardless of color, so let's stop dividing us, at least this is something we all experience and can empathize with.

Things need to change, starting with the horrible word 'halfu'.

How many skeletons are in Hashimoto's closet? I bet it's more than Kobayashi's. She's a vicious, petty woman that likes to tear people down. KARMA's coming for her.

Well there is Hashimoto's elephant in the room that we are not allowed to mention on here without comments being deleted.

A negative, hate fueled mob of nerds spending their every waking hour trawling the history of the internet in order to find any out of context word or phrase that does not fit well with their 2021 agreed ethical standards of speech.

Time to cancel, cancel culture.

Posted in: To close the gender gap, it is essential to improve the working environment on the set. There is harassment, working hours are long, and sleep time is reduced. Even if we train young women, they can't stand it and leave. See in context

Long hours, yes. But harassment falls overwhelmingly on women, not just in the film industry but in almost any Japanese workplace.

The women in my Japanese company have it far easier than the men. They take days off on a weekly basis, they get given less work to do, are given a far easier time if they are not performing and the pretty ones get away with murder, literally doing nothing and drawing a good salary. It's grossly unfair to the male team members.

But the men put up with it. Sounds like the women have other options that the men don't...

One look at the gender disparity of homeless people will answer that for you. Women always have options, men have all the pressure and expectations on their shoulders.

Hamilton drove disgracefully, he can't beat Verstappen fairly so runs him off the track them celebrates that as if it's something to be proud of.

As for racist comments I don't know as I havent seen it but he should certainly be getting 'abuse' for the unsportsmanlike move he pulled.

Women are not 'minorities' they make up 50 % of the population. As for actual demographic minority races the clue is in the name 'minority'. When a race makes up 6% of the population don't expect 50% representation anywhere, that would be positive racism which I'm sure we all disagree with.
