Tokyo 2020: Booze, Condoms, and Fans

Published on June 20th, 2021

Tokyo, Japan (June 20, 2021) – The organizing committee of this summer’s Tokyo Olympics said today that participants will be allowed to bring alcoholic beverages into the athletes’ village but only for consumption in their rooms, as part of efforts to ensure the safety of the games amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The organizing committee also said it will not distribute condoms to participants during their stay in the village but on their departure, a break from recent Olympic tradition. Condoms have been given to participants since the 1988 Seoul Olympics to raise awareness of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, commonly known as AIDS, according to the committee.

With around a month to go until the start of the Olympics, five organizing bodies of the games, including the Japanese and Tokyo metropolitan governments and the International Olympic Committee, will decide tomorrow on how many Japanese spectators will be allowed at venues. The decision to ban international fans had previously been made. – Full report
