Some of the athletes who tested positive for the coronavirus were first-time Olympians. They all must wait in a 'quarantine hotel' for up to 10 days and watch their teammates compete without them.

Jingle, Pluck, and Hum: Sounds from Space

A “sonification” project led by NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory and NASA’s Universe of Learning program transforms otherwise inaudible data from some of the world’s most powerful telescopes into sound.

Just as a certain country always gets around the doping tests I wonder if COVID tests could be falsified purposely to give the winning edge to a certain country TokyoOlympics Tokyo2020 I wonder why the IOC didn't make vaccination a requirement to participate. It would have solved so many problems and heartaches.

flightbomb I feel sorry for those who were fully vaccinated. The rest shouldn’t have been allowed to travel. Why do people comment if they don’t read the article? Bahahahahaha Bahahahahaha Bahahahahaha If only there were some way to prevent COVID Why can’t they be in quarantine & come out for a few minutes to do their sport? Then go back. Depends on the sport, but short stints in public doing their sport, in a properly ventilated facility seems pretty safe. Isn’t risk based on duration & quantity of exposure to virus?

Hopefully they can log into their Netflix account! Lots of good binge watching! The sports psychs got their hands full! Good. If you compete at the highest level and don't take your health -- and the health of your teammates and competitors seriously enough to get vaccinated -- you deserve to miss out on this once in a lifetime event.

....but where these athletes vaccinated? no one is confirming that one way or other.
