Tokyo Olympics: PM Modi Reviews Olympic Preparations, To Interact With Tokyo-Bound Indian Athletes On July 13




Prime Minister Narendra Modi will interact with India’s Olympic-bound sportspersons on July 13, three days before the first batch of athletes departs for the Games in Tokyo. The interaction will be held virtually owing to the COVID-19 situation. “Hon’ble PM Shri Narendra Modi will interact with #TokyoOlympics bound athletes to motivate them ahead of their participation in the forthcoming Games, which will be held from 23 July to 8th August 2021,” the government’s citizen engagement platform, MyGovIndia, posted on its twitter page. The first batch of India’s Olympic-bound athletes will depart for Tokyo in a charter Air India flight.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi took stock of India’s Olympic preparations on Friday.

“Reviewed preparations for facilitation of India’s contingent at @Tokyo2020. Discussed the logistical details, their vaccination status, the multi-disciplinary support being given,” Modi tweeted.

“On behalf of 130 crore Indians, I would be interacting with the Olympics bound athletes on 13th July to wish them luck. Let us all #Cheer4India,” he said.

More than 120 athletes are bound for the Games, even though the Indian Olympic Association is yet to officially divulge the strength of the contingent.

In view of the raging COVID-19 cases, the Tokyo Olympics will be held under a state of emergency in Japan without spectators from July 23 to August 8.
