During the Tokyo Olympics, drinking alcohol in public areas may be banned in the areas of the Game Village. Toshihiri Muto, CEO of the Tokyo Olympic Games Organizing Committee, said, “If they are drinking in their rooms, it will be like we drink in our own house.” We can’t stop them from drinking inside the room and it will be very difficult to do that.’ To prevent the effects of Corona in Tokyo, a state of emergency is in place until 20 June where the sale of alcohol in restaurants and bars is banned. Muto said, ‘We have not yet taken any decision regarding alcohol. We are hopeful that a decision in this regard will be taken by the end of this month.
Gold expected from Indian shooters
On the other hand, Indian pistol team’s long-time foreign coach Pavel Smirnov believes that not one or two or three of his shooters at the Tokyo Olympics are capable of winning medals, including gold. The Tokyo Olympics will be held from July 23 to August 8 and the Indian shooting team will be represented by a record 15 shooters. Especially from the very talented young pistol shooters including Saurabh Chaudhary and Manu Bhaker. Abhishek Verma and Yashaswini Singh Deswal are also medal contenders while the experienced Rahi Sarnobat provides strength to the team.
