TOKYO, Oct. 12 (Xinhua) -- International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach said on Monday that the Tokyo Olympic Games will be held under any circumstances the world will face next summer.
"It was good to decompress the situation a little bit and send strength to all Argentines."
"This is a spectacular season," said Coe, himself a two-time former Olympic champion. "This is an exceptional year. I'm really thankful for them. It tells me that the athletes have weathered the pandemic months extremely well. Many of them have been limited to their own houses for many months."
"If I gave up at first, I would not have got the chance at a later stage," she pointed out.
"I am not a doctor and cannot treat them, but maybe Tai Chi can help them improve rehabilitation."
Liu Qi and Xu Nairui also contributed 12 and 11 points respectively for Daqing. "I told them to fight until the end no matter when leading or trailing. All their efforts have paid off," Ji said.
WARSAW, Oct. 9 (Xinhua) -- Seven speed skaters of the Poland national team have tested positive for COVID-19, informed the Polish Speed Skating Federation in the official statement on Friday.
In a video message released by the Tokyo 2020 organizing committee, Bach told Chef de Missions of all national Olympic committees, "I am sure the question today in your mind is: will the athletes make their Olympic dream come true in 10 months from now? In this regard, I can reassure you that we are working at full speed with our Japanese partners and friends to ensure safe Olympic Games that are fit for the post-corona world."
"I had already won a medal in Rio, so I am not going to be under pressure in Tokyo."
He also discussed Merino and Rodri, saying Merino was "a great player and with a style of play similar to mine, who can play in a holding role or further forward. I also really like Rodri as a player. There have been great players in the side and more will come in the future," explained the midfielder.
The fourth seed has yet to play Swiatek on the Tour but encountered with each other on the same stage in the junior competitions four years ago.
