Tokyo Olympic Organizing Committee: cancel the torch handover ceremony for students to perform twice
Tokyo Olympic Organizing Committee Chairman Yoshiro Mori disclosed last night that due to the impact of the new coronary pneumonia epidemic, the Japanese student performance venue at the torch relay ceremony in Athens will be cancelled next week.According to plan, the torch of the Tokyo Olympics will be collected on March 12 at the Ancient Olympia Arena in Greece.On March 19, the Greek Olympic Committee and the Japanese Olympic Committee will hand over the antique torch. The Japanese will then bring the torch back to China.At this handover ceremony of the torch, the Japanese Olympic Committee arranged a corresponding program, which included about 140 elementary and junior high school students from Japan to perform street dance and other cultural performances.However, due to the impact of the New Coronary Pneumonia epidemic, elementary schools, junior high schools and high schools in Japan have all been closed.For the health and safety of the children, the Japanese Olympic Committee must make a switch to cancel the student performance at the handover ceremony.Tokyo Olympic Organizing Committee Chairman Mori said that the children will not go to Greece together, “It is a pity that the children have not had the opportunity to show their achievements until today.I hope the organizing committee can use other methods to let them show their talents, and we will continue to discuss this matter in the future.”On March 20th, the welcome ceremony for the torch of the Tokyo Olympic Games will be held at the Matsushima Air Self-Defense Force Matsushima base. It has been confirmed that children and ordinary spectators will be cancelled at the welcome ceremony.From March 26th, the torch will be passed throughout Japan for a period of 121 days.In view of the current development of the epidemic situation, the Tokyo Olympic Organizing Committee has successively released the prevention and control measures during the torch relay. The torch will be restricted to enter the event venue in the area where the torch is diagnosed.If the torchbearer is unwell, the torchbearer will cancel the cancellation. One person who alternately places the torchbearer in front and back will be responsible for running this distance.Sauna, Ye Wang Sun Haiguang Editor Wang Chunqiu Proofreading Liu Jun
