American runner Justin Gatlin won the 100 meters during the Japanese test of Japanese organizers at a meeting in Tokyo. The 39-year-old Olympic champion in the shortest race of Athens and two-time world champion achieved an average time of 10.24 seconds and defeated the home team Uhi Tado by two hundred.
The second most important category meeting of the continental tour – gold was attended by more than four hundred athletes, but only a handful of foreigners, including Gatlin and Qatari climber Moataz Issa Barshim, who won a 230cm performance. The races at Japan National Stadium, which will host the opening and closing ceremonies in less than three months at the Olympics as well as athletics, were a test for the organizers ahead of the postponed games. In particular, the organizers have embraced the work under strict measures against the spread of the Coronavirus.
The meeting with the subtitle “Ready Steady Tokyo – Athletics” was held without spectators, given that the state of emergency is currently in effect in Tokyo due to the worsening coronavirus situation. In the capital and many other provinces, the procedures will continue until May 31. The Olympic Games will begin on July 23, and it has yet to be decided whether Japanese spectators will at least be able to enter the halls during the mega event. The presence of aliens was previously unlikely.
