for how long must he be quarantined ?

He seems unsure about it. But he did say that "staying in quarantine for 7 days would seriously reduce his chances of competing". They are trying everything to stop this quarantine, though...

 

But just the fact that something like 100 (negative) athletes could feasibly miss the Olympics due to one positive test on their flight is eerie... And even then, different rules apply to different teams, apparently.

Is this or every other topic on this subforum now going to be one guy constantly arguing with entire board about how he feels the games should be canceled or how there's going to be some sort of covid

Amber Hill world no.1 ranked skeet shooter has tested positive in the UK and is unable to travel to Tokyo

I’ve never seen anybody not want an Olympics as much as you don’t want one orangehair

This must be a bad joke...

 

A full week after arriving to Japan, our canoeist Matija Marinić ended up in quarantine today (not allowed to train on the rapids) because some person from his flight tested positive... And that's despite Marinić testing negative every day since arriving in Japan.

 

There were canoeists from other nations on that flight as well, but apparently not all of them were ordered a quarantine...

 

If this is how it works, then just cancel the Games ffs ! :facepalm::yikes::hairpull:

Bugger, this really sucks!! Just the beginning (even before the Games) and already such a mess.  

 

I hope they will put that in line .... Cause I guess these decisions will not be only on Japanese government but also on IOC or am I wrong?

That's completely ridiculous from the Japanese. And all this while they have a so-called "state of emergency" in which everything is allowed.

It is nonsense that the protocols were made in November and December 2020. During the second wave. But since then, the behavior of athletes has changed completely, a million different competitions held under completely different rules. And now they are returning to the rules almost 9 months ago. Nonsense. Especially since most athletes are vaccinated,

So unusual to see our NOC actually doing something.

 

The NOC president Mateša was loud and called the organizers "incompetent". They have asked the IOC to resolve this as soon as possible.


Marinić is vaccinated. He has been tested for the last 10 days (including all 8 days since arriving to Japan) and was negative every time.

 

And now he will lose two training days minimum (best case scenario). Game over.

Oh, and the decision who to quarantine was based on their "proximity" to the positive person (according to their ticket numbers). Marinić and his coach reportedly did not sit at their specified places, though, as the flight (from Istanbul) was not full.

It's clear that IOC and the Japanese didn't think about just how bad things can get with the current COVID protocols. Or they don't care anymore.

 

We are on the brink of potentially witnessing the worst Olympic Games ever, this isn't in the hands of IOC or anyone at this point, it's up to pure luck how it will all turn out.

Japan population don’t want the games - this is just them trying not possibly see civil disobedience occur becuase of them.

Swapping seats has caused problems in quarantine before. People should know that.

The organizers quarantined them by their assigned seat numbers so changing seats did not cause any problem here. In fact, had they not swapped seats, they would have actually been in the "proximity" and potentially positive now (although sill very unlikely).

 

What matters is that all this daily testing is done improperly, when some "iffy" circumstance (at best) can override days of negative tests.


And all this in an arguably most quarantine-friendly sport to begin with. One athlete competing at a time on an ever-changing, liquid venue.
