They did the same for college football last year, which I thought was ridiculous.

Tokyo Olympics: 2 Players Test Positive Inside The Olympic VIllage : NPR

Two Athletes Have Tested Positive For COVID-19 Inside The Olympic Village

With less than a week before the opening ceremonies begin at this year's Tokyo games, at least two players on the South African soccer team have tested positive for COVID-19 inside the Olympic Village.

The two players, Thabiso Monyane and Kamohelo Mahlatsi, are the first athletes to test positive for the coronavirus at the site of the Olympic Village in the Japanese capital. A video analyst for the team, Mario Masha, also tested positive.

All three have been isolated, along with those who were in close contact with them.

Organizers for the games did not name the athletes, but said they were "non-Japanese." Their test results were confirmed by the South African Football Association.

In a statement, the association said the team has "followed all relevant Olympic Playbook rules, protocols and procedures throughout the pre-Games and Games arrival routines."

The association also noted that the rest of the team has tested negative.

I do, too.  I went to school with a figure skating pair who were in the Olympics years ago and before the competition started, one of them got an injury that forced them to bow out.  All of that work and preparation for nothing.

Who were they?  I used to follow figure skating pretty intensely!

My assumption is that all athletes and those who travel with them must be vaccinated, right?  I don't know if I've read anything to that effect or not, but it does seem logical. Which means the athletes could test positive and never develop the illness.

Ah, I was a kid during the 70's and I remember watching figure skating then but don't remember most of their names.  I followed the sport during my 20's and 30's.

Dorothy Hamill? She was the figure skating Darling in 1976.
