Tokyo Olympics to allow limit of 10,000 local fans in venues – ESPN

TOKYO -- The Tokyo Olympics will allow some local fans to attend when the Games open in just over a month, organizing committee officials and the IOC said on Monday. Organizers set a limit of 50% of capacity up to a maximum of 10,000 fans for all Olympic venues. The decision was announced after so-called five-party talks online with local organizers, the International Olympic Committee, the International Paralympic Committee, the Japanese government and the government of metropolitan Tokyo.

He had previously called it "abnormal" to hold the Olympics during the pandemic. The Tokyo Games are set to open on July 23. ...
