Narinder Batra, President of the Indian Olympic Association, stated on Thursday that IOA officials who have arrived in Tokyo ahead of the Olympic Games have considered the facilities to be excellent, and that certain "dining hall concerns" had been rectified for the delegation. When the Indian Contingent of 90 arrives in Tokyo on July 18, these officials will be the first to greet them in the Village.
"From India Chef de Mission Mr B P Baishya, Dy Chef de Mission and COVID Liasion Officer Dr Prem Verma, Contingent Doctor and additional CLO Dr Arun Basil and Jt Director Indian Olympic Association Mr George arrived in the Games Village on 14th July," Batra said.
After landing in Tokyo, the Indian athletes will indeed be subjected to a three-day quarantine, and the IOA has expressed worries over how their rations would be supervised during this period.
"I was informed by Dy Chef de Mission that the stay arrangements at the Games Village are very good and the Dining Hall issues, as India is one of the 14 Countries with extra conditions, also stand resolved," Batra added but did not elaborate the details of the resolution.
During the Games, the competitors will be subjected to extensive testing.
Despite the raging epidemic, the mega-event will take place from July 23 to August 8 under rigorous health safety measures and without crowds.
