How Indian athletes rate the Tokyo Olympics Games village?
The Tokyo Olympics gets underway in just three days. Meanwhile, the Indian athletes have reached Tokyo and have stepped foot inside the Olympic Village, while their initial reactions are out on the arrangements made. Check them out.
The 2020 Tokyo Olympics kick starts this Friday. Ahead of the same, the Indians have already stepped foot in the Japanese capital and have entered the Olympic Village that would be their home for the next three weeks.
Meanwhile, the Indians have come up with initial reactions to the Village and the arrangements that have been made. Most reviews so far have been mixed, as there is a scope of improvement from the organisers, reports PTI.
As for the reactions and improvements needed:
- One hundred plus electric kettles are needed for athletes' daily needs, while a request for the same has been submitted to the Indian Embassy.
- Rooms are being cleaned every three days to minimise contact with the athletes.
- Food options are aplenty, including Indian foods. However, some feel that the Indian food could be prepared a little better.
- Most of the Indians have been handed the daily testing kits and can hand over the swab samples to the IOA officials before preparing to leave for training.
"It has been smooth for us, and no complaints at all. I had daal and parotta yesterday, and it was fine," said Indian paddler G Sathiyan on the Indian food and the arrangements.
