Bach’s “stroll” in Ginza the day after the Olympics closed draws criticism: “Athletes are not allowed to go sightseeing.”

On the 9th, one day after the closing of the Tokyo Olympics, International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach (67) was seen walking in Ginza.

On the day, many photos and videos were uploaded on Twitter showing President Bach walking in Ginza, Tokyo, accompanied by his officials.

Some passers-by asked him for a two-shot, and some people on social networking sites pointed out that “players are not allowed to go sightseeing” and “this is indeed different”, and others said “go home quickly”.

 In this year’s tournament, according to the “Playbook”, a guideline for dealing with the new coronavirus, athletes are not allowed to go out except to places that have been submitted in advance in the “Japan Activity Plan”.

Of course, going out for sightseeing is a violation. They must also leave the village within 48 hours of the end of the competition and return home as soon as possible.

 There are no rules relating to President Bach himself, but he has been criticised in view of the strict regulations on athletes.

Bach seems to think only of money.
