Have to say, this was a very compelling and impressive sport to watch. Good Olympic addition in my humble opinion…
Brilliant story on a gentleman who puts most of us to shame when it comes to sport…
Back home to pick something up just in time for 😍�aa
Given the outcomes over the pandemic in the UK vs. Japan, you can kind of see why people might prefer to stick with the Japanese approach to things?…
As this is reported I'm listening to Professor Koji Wada call on the government to introduce new measures to tackle the situation…
Already 32C (90F) before noon in Sapporo. The #Tokyo2020 race walk and marathon events were moved here to avoid Tokyo’s hot summer, but Hokkaido has been experiencing a heat wave and there’s not much difference in temperature.

This is some dystopian shit rivaling some of the grimmest GoFundMe stories. American society is so damaged:…

I do not envy the poor Tokyo 2020 staff who have to coax the absolutely wrecked athletes off the track to make way for the next race.
Not the records we want to be seeing frankly. Bring on the resumption of workplace vaccinations....…
And if you're wondering whether skateboarding is popular in Japan, the park where one of Japan's gold medallists learned his skills now has signs up banning the sport, as @AFP reported here:……
Unbelievable show by Japan. Three golds, and they took three of the top four spots in the women's park today (and Sky Brown was considering competing for Japan until not too many years ago)…
Well that earthquake just kept going and going. Nothing like a languid shake to wake you up in the morning!

From Cobra Kai to Chuck Norris, karate is known around the world -- but practitioners of the Japanese martial art are hoping the #Olympics can bring an even wider audience

I've been really impressed by this throughout the gymnastics, men and women. Each team fist bumping and hugging opponents. Really collegial and supportive. Very nice to see.…
'I did it for me', @Simone_Biles told us after winning bronze on beam tonight.
Bronze for Biles on beam, with China's Guan Chenchen and Tang Xijing taking gold and silver respectively
Just one gymnast to go, and @Simone_Biles is guaranteed a bronze…
Score of 14.000 for @Simone_Biles who performs a pretty clean routine on the beam, but is in second for now and likely to be pushed down further.
Meanwhile I'm literally wearing a sweater inside the Olympic media centre and have managed to catch a cold (sneezing, no fever and I'm vaccinated, for all you worrying...)…
As dozens of reporters wait to ask IOC about the case of Belarusian athlete, among other issues, we're instead getting a previously scheduled lengthy briefing on TV viewership...
@Simone_Biles #BREAKING Krystsina Tsimanouskaya, a Belarusian Olympic athlete who claimed her team tried to force her to leave Japan, will likely travel to Poland, her husband told AFP on Monday, adding he himself had left Belarus

BREAKING from @AFP: @Simone_Biles is on the start list for tomorrow's @Tokyo2020 beam final
A bit surprised to be approached by Yomiuri Shimbun reporters outside the Olympic media centre asking me to complete a survey including asking my vaccination status. One left me alone when I said I live here but another one kept trying to ask questions until I said I was busy

Only the beam left in terms of competition for Biles this Games. The decision means both Gadirova twins will be on the floor tomorrow.…
I give you the gold medal in optimism...…
Huge queues, in 34 degrees, outside the National Stadium here in Tokyo. All to get a pic with the Olympic Rings. #Tokyo2020

Wow, super impressive performance from Japan's Minato Oike at the BMX. I have no idea how scoring works for this sport, but she was incredible.
Great initiative here offering reporters some of Fukushima's delicious produce. Peaches from Japan in general are amazing, and Fukushima's are known as especially lovely (and fruit here is expensive, so this is a generous gift!)…
At the BMX freestyle park finals today It’s already 30 degrees now and it’s only 9:25. Why didn’t they build any shades 🥵w

Dina Asher-Smith has withdrawn from the #Tokyo2020 200 metres after revealing she tore a hamstring in the buildup to Tokyo. She tells @BBCSport "the last few weeks of my athlete life have been absolutely insane" @AFPphoto

(Rephrasing to remove Biles reference) Earlier this week, Djokovic said that athletes "better start learning how to deal with pressure and how to cope with those moments". Today he hurled his racquet into the stands and smashed another on a net post after losing.

And there it is. With the latest fencing win, it’s a record haul of gold medals for Japan, surpassing the 16 medals in Athens and the original Tokyo games in 1964.

Haha, exactly the reaction I had to this video.…
Greatly enjoyed this brilliant cameraman following the action at the trampoline gymnastics today

They've had to bring in extra security at Ariake-tennis-no-mori because people are lining up on the platform and outside to catch the BMX competition.
So painful to watch these falls. Heartbreaking.…
US gymnastics star @Simone_Biles revealed today she's still battling the dreaded 'twisties' and it is affecting her on every apparatus. No word on her plans for upcoming competitions. @AFP story here:…
Those people will largely be vaccinated and all be tested a minimum of every four days, but I don't expect that to factor in to the reaction to them being seen out and about in Tokyo...…
