Olympic Village opened in Tokyo

July 13, 10 days before the start of the Games of the XXXII Olympiad, the Olympic Village in Tokyo (Japan) opened its doors.

The Olympic Village includes 21 buildings. Athletes have been provided with more than 3600 rooms for accommodation.

Interestingly, the beds in the athletes’ rooms are made of cardboard, and the mattresses are made of plastic – they are all suitable for further processing. These “cardboard” beds can withstand a weight of up to 200 kg.

Note that according to the new protocols developed by the Tokyo Games Organizing Committee, athletes will come to the Village no earlier than 5 days before the start of their competition and leave within 2 days after the end of their performances.

To prevent the spread of coronavirus, a separate medical unit operates around the clock on the territory of the Olympic Village. Athletes take tests every day, wear masks during their stay in Tokyo and adhere to all established safety rules.
