950 people will take part in the opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics

950 people will be able to attend the opening ceremony of the Summer Olympic Games in Japan, said the representative of the Tokyo 2020 organizing committee Hidemasa Nakamura.

How many athletes will pass through the stadium is not specified. During the parade, athletes will maintain social distance and wear medical masks, Nakamura said.

President of the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) Stanislav Pozdnyakov added that at the opening of the Games their delegation will not exceed 80 people.

“From 66 to 80 members of our delegation will take part in the march,” TASS quoted him as saying.

According to him, this is due to the fact that many athletes will start the competition the next day, so they are exempted from participating in the ceremony.

The head of the ROC added that up to six officials can be present in the columns of the march. There are no restrictions for athletes.

On Friday, July 23rd, the opening ceremony of the Olympics will take place in Tokyo. Games in the Japanese capital were supposed to take place in 2020. Due to the pandemic, the sporting event was postponed for a year. Now the Olympic Games will be held from July 23 to August 8.

Due to the situation with the coronavirus, the opening ceremony will be held without foreign fans and local spectators.
