The cancellation means that their opponents, Japan’s Megumi Murakami and Miki Ishii, will take the win by default and progress forward.A total of ten beach volleyball games are scheduled for Saturday, but so far the overall atmosphere of the event is a stark contrast to the beach party vibe seen in Rio and London. headtopics.com
Both the men’s and women’s Brazilian teams scored victories over continental rivals Argentina in matches that were played in the sweltering summer heat of Tokyo as temperatures hit 90 degrees Fahrenheit.A DJ played music from the stands and delivered play-by-play commentary and the only other people in attendance were the half a dozen ball attendants.
Crucial Quote“In Brazil, we had the biggest support. There were many, many people cheering for us, and here we had silence,” Brazil’s Ágatha Bednarczuk—who won a silver at the Rio games—the Associated Press. “We need to put our emotion in the game, because we can’t receive emotion from them. For me, it’s very important to play with emotion so I had to bring it from inside.”
Key Backgroundreported17 new Covid-19 cases tied to the Olympics. This includes one foreign athlete who is not residing in the games village, 14 contractors, and two games officials—one of whom was staying in the village.

Australia’s covid-19 strategy is being testedAstraZeneca, the one vaccine of which Australia has plenty, is only given to the over-60s. This is one reason why vaccination rates are low: just 15% of the adult population has been jabbed horrible No vaccination rates are low because our Federal Government ONLY ordered AZ and spent months telling us to wait for Pfizer if we didn't want AZ. Doh!

5-Year-Old Boy Dies of COVID-19 in GeorgiaA family in Georgia is grieving after a 5-year-old boy with no known health problems died of COVID-19. His father wrote on Facebook that he’d lost “my best friend,” according to reports. I read that he had multiple health issues. Why wouldn’t you disclose that? Woke Quack While this is tragic, I'm assuming you're going to be sending tweets about each of the 40 young kids who die in the US EVERY DAY instead of tricking people into thinking that kids only die of COVID. Less than 350 kids died of COVID. It is very rare compared to other causes!
