Athletes who fell in love at 1964 Tokyo Olympics advise participants to make ‘good memories’

Two athletes who fell in love after meeting on a flight to Tokyo for the 1964 Olympics have urged the participants in the Games to make “good memories”.

Cyclist Hugh Porter and swimmer Anita Lonsbrough, who went on to win numerous gold medals as they reached the top of their respective sports, married a year after meeting on the flight.

In an interview with the BBC, the couple shared their wisdom as they asked the athletes to “absorb everything”.

The Olympic champion from London and Rio said: “为我, it would be probably my best achievement.

Controversial Olympic opening ceremonies

Although there have been a few preliminary events, the opening ceremony truly marks the start of the games and often in spectacular fashion. At both the summer and winter games, there is often a lot of anticipation for what sort of show the host city will put on and if they get it right, it can really get the games off to a positive and optimistic start.

然而, for all the awe and wonder that the opening ceremony is supposed to inspire it doesn’t always work like that. On more than one occasion technical faults and odd directorial decisions have created talking points and controversy that overshadow the entire event. Here we take a look at seven of the most bizarre and controversial moments:

What to expect from the opening ceremony

After such a precarious build-up, the opening ceremony will officially mark the beginning of the Olympic Games in Tokyo. Here is what you can expect from the spectacle at the National Stadium.

Who is going to watch the ceremony?

Emperor Naruhito is reportedly due to be the guest of honour but he will be joined by only a handful of VIPs. The respective heads of Toyota and Panasonic, among others, have declared that they will stay away due to concerns over the public’s negative perception of the Games. Media will also be permitted to cover the ceremony but members of the public have been barred.

Will the traditional athletes’ parade take place?

是的, but in vastly reduced numbers. Less than 30 members of Team GB are expected to march, and the confirmed numbers are barely bigger for Australia and Canada respectively. Many athletes with imminent competitions prefer to stay away, but the number of absentees has been swelled by those who have legitimate concerns over the spread of coronavirus.

Why are countries allowed to name two flag bearers?

The decision to propose one male and one female flag bearer was made by the International Olympic Committee in a bid to promote its message of equality. In a statement the IOC said it was sending “an extremely strong message to the world that gender balance is a reality at the Olympic Games”. 此外, nations with smaller delegations have been strongly urged to name at least one male and one female athlete in their squads. It is not mandatory for nations to name two flag bearers; in those that do, the two flag bearers will share one flag.

What form will the ceremony take?

Japanese media say the ceremony will be “solemn”, in keeping with the ambivalent – at best – attitude to the Games in Tokyo, and even that Emperor Naruhito will refrain from using the word ‘celebrate’. That means it is unlikely any big-name musical stars will be flown in for the occasion. Besides, the ceremony has been hit by a series of scandals, culminating in the dismissal of its director Kentaro Kobayashi on the eve of the event due to alleged anti-Semitic jokes he made during a comedy routine in 1998.

Swiss hurdler out of Tokyo Olympics after doping ban

Swiss athlete Kariem Hussein, who specialises in 400m hurdle, is out of the Tokyo Olympics after he was given a nine-month doping suspension.

The 32-year-old tested positive for a banned stimulant earlier this month, the Swiss Olympic Committee said in a statement. “The presence of the prohibited substances nikethamide and the metabolite N-ethylnicotinamide had been demonstrated to the athlete in the doping test. The suspension has been in effect since 16 七月, 2021, the beginning of the provisional suspension and is effective for all sports and all functions in sports.”

Reacting to the news, Hussein tweeted: “My dream of the Olympic Games in Tokyo is over. I was banned for 9 月. One lozenge (Gly-Coramin) contained an illegal substance. I made a mistake with grave consequences. I’m so sorry. But if you know me, you know I’ll keep going.”

Olympics Torch Relay concludes in Tokyo

The Olympic Torch Relay has now concluded after a final event at the Citizen’s plaza in Shinjuku city, 东京.

A ceremony marking the torch’s arrival in Tokyo was attended by the city’s governor Koike Yuriko and the mayor of Shinjuku-ku, Yoshizumi Kenichi.

Kabuki actor Nakamura Kankuro VI ignited the Olympic Flame on a special celebration cauldron.

The torch will inevitably play a key role in the opening ceremony for the Games later today, when it will be taken from Shinjuku to the Olympic Stadium.
