This picture taken on January 19, 2021 shows detail on the forehead of Miraitowa, the mascot for the coronavirus-delayed Tokyo 2020 Olympics, at the office of the Tokyo Organizing Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Tokyo. – When the Tokyo Olympics were postponed last year, officials promised they would open in 2021 as proof of humankind’s triumph over the coronavirus. But six months before the delayed start, victory over the virus remains distant, and fears are growing rapidly that the Games of the 32nd Olympiad may not happen at all. (Photo by Philip FONG / AFP) / TO GO WITH AFP STORY OLY-2020-2021-JAPAN-VIRUS-HEALTH BY ANDREW MCKIRDY TOKYO – Over half of Japanese firms believe the Tokyo Olympic Games should be canceled or postponed, a survey by think tank Tokyo Shoko Research showed on Monday, casting further doubt over the fate of the troubled Games. Japan is struggling to contain the coronavirus and lags behind western countries in rolling out vaccines, even as Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga vowed to get conditions in place to host the once-postponed Summer Olympics from July 23. The survey, conducted online on Feb. 1-8, showed 56.0% of the companies polled feel Japan should cancel or postpone the Games, up from 53.6% in the previous survey in August. Only 7.7% of the firms surveyed said the Games should proceed in full form as scheduled this year, down from 22.5% in the previous survey. Nearly 20% said the Games should be held with a limited number of spectators, while another 17% said it should proceed with no spectators, the survey showed. Over 70% firms said cancelling or postponing the Games will barely have any impact on their earnings. The survey, which covered over 11,000 firms, was conducted before Friday’s resignation of Tokyo 2020 Olympics chief Yoshiro Mori over sexist remarks that left the Olympics searching for a chief five months from the opening ceremony.

Nets’ Kevin Durant cleared to return vs Warriors after virus scare
By admin | | 0 Comments |

Brooklyn Nets power forward Kevin Durant (7) drives with the ball against Toronto Raptors power forward Pascal Siakam (43) during the second quarter at Barclays Center. (Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports/file) Kevin Durant has been cleared to return to the Brooklyn Nets’ lineup just in time for his first road matchup with his former team, the Golden State Warriors. Durant, who missed three games because of COVID-19 protocols, returned to practice Friday for the first time since he was pulled from the Nets’ game against the Toronto Raptors on Feb. 5. “Going back to Golden State, I’m looking forward to playing again and being out there with the team to try to build some chemistry. That’s my main focus,” said Durant, who played three seasons with the Warriors and won the NBA title with them in 2017 and 2018. “I had some great years in Golden State, looking forward to being back in the Bay Area, but it’s just a shame the fans won’t be there.” Durant, 32, was considered a close contact with a Nets employee who tested positive for the virus when he was pulled from the game with the Raptors. He tested negative throughout the week. “It was just an unfortunate situation,” Durant said. “I was looking forward to that game that night. Being told right before the tipoff that I had to wait a second for a test, it just threw off my rhythm a bit because I wanted to go out there and play. “But I mean I’m back out there now, it is what it is, I was a little upset during and after the game. But I’m cool now. I’m ready to play.” Durant’s stint with Golden State ended when he ruptured his Achilles tendon in Game 5 of the 2019 NBA Finals, a series the Warriors lost to the Raptors in six games. That offseason he left for the Nets as a free agent, signing a four-year deal worth $164 million. He missed all of the 2019-20 season while recovering from his injury. In 18 games this season, the four-time NBA scoring champion has averaged 29.5 points and 7.4 rebounds per game. gsg For more news about the novel coronavirus click here.

Melbourne enters new lockdown, barring Australian Open crowds
By admin | | 0 Comments |

FILE PHOTO: Tennis – Australian Open – Melbourne, Australia, January 14, 2018. Tennis balls are pictured in front of the Australian Open logo before the tennis tournament. REUTERS/Thomas Peter/File Photo SYDNEY—Australia’s second-most populous city will enter a five-day snap coronavirus lockdown, authorities said on Friday, barring spectators for much of the Australian Open tennis tournament. A fresh COVID-19 cluster linked to a quarantine hotel in Melbourne, the capital of Victoria state, reached 13 cases as of Thursday midnight, as authorities rushed to quash the spread of the virus. All of those infections were linked to the highly contagious UK variant. Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews announced the lockdown for the state, starting at midnight on Friday, calling it a “short, sharp circuit breaker” banning public gatherings, home auctions, weddings and religious gatherings. “We must assume that there are further cases in the community than we have positive results for, and that it is moving at a velocity that has not been seen anywhere in our country over the course of these last 12 months,” Andrews told reporters, noting the high transmission rate of the UK variant. Asked about the Australian Open, which runs through Feb. 21, the premier said the Grand Slam tournament, one the biggest events in the country’s sports calendar, was considered a workplace, subject to lockdown restrictions. “There are no fans. There are no crowds. These people are essentially at their workplace,” he said. “The minimum number of staff for it to be run safely – not just for the virus but other reasons – will be there.” The event had already been limited to 50% of usual capacity and was dogged by earlier complaints from some international players, who were forced to spend critical preparation time in quarantine. The tournament will proceed without crowds over the next five days with no fans allowed at the match sites, organizers said. Spectators will be able to attend games scheduled for Friday, while those who had bought tickets to restricted events will get a refund, they said in a statement. All states and territories, except New South Wales – which includes Sydney and is the nation’s most populous state – closed their borders to Victoria on Friday citing the high risk of transmission. New South Wales, which on Friday recorded the 26th day with no community cases, said its borders with Victoria will remain open while it monitors the situation. Victoria endured one of the world’s strictest and longest lockdowns last year after an outbreak that killed more than 800 in the state, the vast majority of the national death toll. The head of Australia’s business lobby group expressed frustration at the fresh lockdown, calling it a “bitter disappointment for the whole community”. “This is the second lockdown caused by Victoria’s hotel quarantine system, it must not be as long and destructive as the last,” Business Council Chief Executive Jennifer Westacott said. “We must get hotel quarantine working properly.” More broadly, Australia has been among the world’s most successful countries in handling the pandemic, largely because of decisive lockdowns and borders sealed to all but a trickle of travelers. The nation has recorded some 22,200 community cases and 909 deaths. But its quarantine hotels, where all international arrivals have to spend two weeks, have been a weak link in its defenses, with the latest Melbourne cluster another example. Premier Andrews proposed tightening Australia’s citizen repatriation program to compassionate reasons only, a move that could get some support from other states that have had the UK strain. Ahead of the lockdown announcement, Prime Minister Scott Morrison offered his government’s full support for Victoria’s decisions on containing the outbreak.

No hugs or high-fives: Olympic organizers unveil athlete rulebook
By admin | | 0 Comments |

The Tokyo 2020 Olympics Games logo is seen in Tokyo on January 28, 2021. (Photo by Charly TRIBALLEAU / AFP) No socializing, no handshakes and definitely no hugs — that’s what athletes at the coronavirus-postponed Tokyo Olympics can expect this summer, according to a virus rulebook released Tuesday by organizers. The 33-page document — the last in a series of “playbooks” drawn up in a bid to ensure the Games can go ahead safely — also warns athletes they could be kicked out of their events if they break strict anti-virus rules. Under the guidelines, athletes will be tested for the virus at least once every four days, and will be barred from competing if they return a confirmed positive test. The Playbooks are the basis of the collective effort between the IOC, IPC, Tokyo 2020, and the Japanese national authorities to ensure safe and successful Olympic and Paralympic Games this summer. Click the link for more information: https://t.co/Zhdjis7jXs pic.twitter.com/UAxf8s0DP0 — #Tokyo2020 (@Tokyo2020) February 3, 2021 Their time in Japan will be “minimized to reduce the risk of infection,” and those staying at the Olympic Village will be expected to “avoid unnecessary forms of physical contact.” Organizers told AFP on Tuesday that they still plan to hand out around 150,000 free condoms to athletes, but the new rulebook urges them to “limit your contact with other people as much as possible.” “If you have been to the Games before, we know this experience will be different in a number of ways,” the guidebook warns. “For all Games participants, there will be some conditions and constraints that will require your flexibility and understanding.” The guide for athletes and team officials is set to be revised in April and again in June, and follows the release of handbooks for sports officials, media and broadcasters last week. The document lays out further detail on virus testing for athletes, with a negative test required within 72 hours of traveling to Japan and again immediately upon arrival. There will be no quarantine for athletes, and they will still be allowed to attend training camps in Japan before the Games begin, but all movements must be rigorously logged and the use of public transport is subject to permission. Athletes “must not visit gyms, tourist areas, shops, restaurants or bars” and can only go to “official Games venues and limited additional locations”. They are also advised to wear masks at all times except when they are competing, training, eating, sleeping or outside in open space. The virus rulebooks are being released as organizers, Olympic officials and Japan’s government works to build confidence that the Games can go ahead safely despite a surge in infections globally. While vaccinations are recommended for athletes, they will not be a requirement to participate in the Games. Support for hosting the virus-postponed event remains low in Japan, with around 80 percent of Japanese backing cancellation or further postponement — something organizers have ruled out. The rollout of the virus rules has been overshadowed by a row over sexist comments made by Tokyo 2020 chief Yoshiro Mori, who faces calls to resign after claiming women speak too much in meetings. So far, he has apologized but declined to step down. The Games are due to open in Tokyo on July 23. For more news about the novel coronavirus click here. What you need to know about Coronavirus.

Former champion Kerber rues hard quarantine after early exit
By admin | | 0 Comments |

Tennis – Australian Open – Melbourne Park, Melbourne, Australia, February 8, 2021 Germany’s Angelique Kerber in action during her first round match against Bernarda Pera of the U.S. REUTERS/Asanka Brendon Ratnayake MELBOURNE – Former champion Angelique Kerber made an early exit from the Australian Open on Monday and said spending two weeks in hard quarantine ahead of the Grand Slam had contributed to her first-round loss. The German former world number one was one of 72 players who were unable to leave their rooms to train during quarantine after passengers on their flights to Melbourne tested positive for COVID-19. Her opponent Bernarda Pera was not among that cohort and the American ousted the 2016 Australian Open champion 6-0 6-4 in little more than an hour on the first morning of the tournament. “Of course, you feel it if you are not the hitting ball for two weeks and you are not in the rhythm,” Kerber told reporters after her earliest exit from Melbourne Park for six years. “I was really trying to staying positive and doing the best out of the two-week situation but you feel it, especially if you play one of the first matches in a Grand Slam … against an opponent who didn’t stay in the hard lockdown.” Kerber congratulated Australia on its success in containing the new coronavirus and said she had enjoyed playing in front of fans again, however briefly. The 33-year-old thought, however, that she might have reconsidered the long trip to Australia if she had known she would have to remain locked in her room for 14 days. “When I look back, of course I was not planning the two weeks in hard quarantine,” she added. “I don’t know, maybe if I knew that before to stay really two weeks in the hard quarantine without hitting a ball, maybe I would think twice about that.” For more news about the novel coronavirus click here.

Biden plans to use NFL stadiums for vaccinations
By admin | | 0 Comments |

FILE – U.S. President Joe Biden waves while boarding Air Force One as he departs Washington for travel to Wilmington, Delaware at Joint Base Andrews, Maryland, U.S., February 5, 2021. REUTERS/Joshua Roberts With the NFL season in the books, the league offered the use of its stadiums for mass COVID-19 vaccinations. US President Joe Biden said on CBS’ Super Bowl pregame show Sunday that his administration intends to take the NFL up on its offer. “Absolutely we will,” President Biden told Norah O’Donnell. “I’m going to tell my team they’re available and I believe we’ll use them.” Seven NFL stadiums were already being used as vaccination sites — the Arizona Cardinals’ State Farm Stadium, Atlanta Falcons’ Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Carolina Panthers’ Bank of America Stadium, Baltimore Ravens’ M&T Bank Stadium, Houston Texans’ NRG Park, Miami Dolphins’ Hard Rock Stadium and the New England Patriots’ Gillette Stadium — but NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell sent a letter to the President earlier in the week offering the remaining 23 stadiums. Biden also expressed his “hope and expectation” that next year’s Super Bowl would be played in front of a fan-filled stadium. For more news about the novel coronavirus click here.

Djokovic serves up masterclass on favorite court
By admin | | 0 Comments |

Tennis – Australian Open – Melbourne Park, Melbourne, Australia, February 8, 2021 Serbia’s Novak Djokovic celebrates winning his first round match against France’s Jeremy Chardy REUTERS/Loren Elliott MELBOURNE – Novak Djokovic got back to doing what he does best on Monday when he steamrollered Frenchman Jeremy Chardy 6-3 6-1 6-2 on Rod Laver Arena in the opening round of the Australian Open. Having come through two weeks of quarantine in Adelaide, and a brief but damaging spat with his hosts about the strict isolation conditions placed on competitors in Melbourne, the world number one let his tennis do the talking as he eased to a 297th Grand Slam victory. Djokovic has won eight of his 17 major titles on Melbourne Park’s main showcourt and, even with a smaller crowd than usual, the Serbian looked very much at home on the distinctive blue surface. “There’s an ongoing love affair with me and this court,” he said to cheers from the fans. “I’ve been lucky to have so much success on this court and hopefully it will continue for many years. It makes my heart full to see so many people in the stadium. This is the most people I’ve seen on a tennis court in 12 months. Thank you.” .@DjokerNole, the floor is yours 💙#AO2021 | #AusOpen pic.twitter.com/SqWLhhQghQ — #AusOpen (@AustralianOpen) February 8, 2021 Chardy had never taken a set off his opponent in 13 previous matches and with Djokovic landing three quarters of his first serves, the Frenchman was unable to muster a single break point. With Djokovic finding the corners with his ranging strokes to rattle up 41 winners, Chardy’s small victories were the occasions when he battled back to hold his serve. Djokovic brought a definitive end to the one-sided contest with back-to-back aces after 91 minutes and will next play American world number 64 Frances Tiafoe in the second round. The Serbian said he felt he played a “flawless” match. “Especially on my service games I was very dominant,” he said. “I went very quick through my service games. “Just overall I think every shot that I executed tonight was really good and on a high level. I’m very pleased with the way I opened up the Australian Open. “On days like this where you feel very comfortable, of course, you try to relax and do few more other things.” For more news about the novel coronavirus click here.

Kyrgios brings the noise to subdued ‘People’s Court’
By admin | | 0 Comments |

Tennis – Australian Open – Melbourne Park, Melbourne, Australia, February 8, 2021 Australia’s Nick Kyrgios during his first round match against Portugal’s Frederico Ferreira Silva REUTERS/Jaimi Joy MELBOURNE – Nick Kyrgios did his best to create his own atmosphere in a subdued John Cain Arena on Monday as he cruised into the second round of the Australian Open with a 6-4 6-4 6-4 victory over qualifier Frederico Ferreira Silva. The Australian can usually expect a febrile atmosphere when he plays on his favorite court, but a local coronavirus outbreak and unseasonably cold weather kept many punters away. Those who did turn up were treated to some vintage Kyrgios moments – a racket thrown across the court, a few choice words toward his box and a few more at the umpire as well as a trademark “tweener”. Scattered fans in the open air stadium, at best a quarter full, wore puffer jackets and blankets, clearly backing the home favorite with occasional cheers and fist bumps. “Honestly it was pretty average. I haven’t played a Grand Slam match in over a year. I was very nervous walking out here and I knew I wouldn’t be able to play my best game,” Kyrgios said after the match. “I was very fortunate that COVID didn’t affect me or my family. I used it as a massive reset and I’m just glad to be back out here.” Kyrgios, who fronted GQ magazine Australia’s digital cover, is undergoing a rebrand after he put in place new management and looked to reform his bad boy image. His public support for communities hit hard by Australia’s horrendous bushfires last year endeared him to a wider audience than fans of the game. Kyrgios certainly played to the local view of top tennis players being divas when he called world number one Novak Djokovic a “tool” when the Serbian, under Australia’s 14-day quarantine, requested houses with tennis courts for players to see out their isolation. The 25-year-old Australian has always had plenty of tennis talent and the world number 47 had far too much for his Portuguese opponent, who was once a rival in the junior ranks but was making his Grand Slam main draw singles debut. Kyrgios next plays French 29th seed Ugo Humbert — almost certainly on what he calls the “People’s Court” — as he looks to at least match his run to the quarter-finals here in 2015.

Biden: ‘Remains to be seen’ if US will send team to Olympics
By admin | | 0 Comments |

FILE – In this March 30, 2020, file photo, a man jogs past the Olympic rings in Tokyo. (AP Photo/Jae C. Hong, File) US President Joe Biden said late Sunday it remains to be seen if the US will send a team to the pandemic-postponed Tokyo 2020 Olympics, in a radio interview in which he also weighed in on diversity in sport. Japan’s government, organizers and Olympic officials all insist the Games will go ahead this summer, and that extensive virus countermeasures will ensure the event is safe. Asked in a Super Bowl half-time radio interview with network Westwood One if he thought the Games would go ahead, Biden said any decision “has to be based on science”. “I hope we can play, I hope it’s possible, but it remains to be seen,” he said, stressing that Japanese prime minister Yoshihide Suga was “working very hard to be in a position to be able to safely open the games.” Biden also addressed the topic of diversity, at a time when National Football League teams have faced accusations of systemic racism for their failure to promote minority coaches to senior roles. When asked by the show’s host if he had any advice for the NFL going forward, the president said teams had to “go out and look, there’s numerous incredible qualified African-American coaches out there.” “I don’t understand why they cannot find — because they exist — so many African-American coaches that are qualified that should be in the pros in my view,” he added.
