Athletes at Tokyo 2020 to sleep on cardboard beds

Posted On Sep 22 2020 by

first_imgRelatedPosts If we don’t have Tokyo Games, we’re unlikely to have Beijing 2022 — IOC member Tokyo 2020: Olympics will be ‘simplified’ in 2021 COVID-19: IOC to bear $800m cost of Tokyo 2020 postponement Athletes competing at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games will sleep on bed frames made from recyclable cardboard. The bed frames will go with mattresses formed of polyethylene materials that will be reused for plastic products after the Games. The environmentally-conscious sleeping arrangements were put on display for the media for the first time on Thursday at a mock apartment in the Tokyo 2020 headquarters. However, construction of residential sections of the Olympic and Paralympic village were completed in December. In all, 18,000 beds will be required at the village, nestled in Tokyo Bay and in sight of the iconic Rainbow Bridge, during the Olympics that begin on July 24. Only 8,000 will be needed for the Paralympics. At 2.10 metres long, the beds should be suitable for all but the very tallest athletes, and the manufacturer, Airweave, is confident they can bear a weight of around 200 kilograms. This is more than any athlete weighed at the 2016 Games in Rio. Construction of some communal areas of the Olympic village, like the main dining hall and the village plaza, is still underway. After the Games, its apartment units will be sold privately, with prices starting from a little over 50 million yen ($457,500). The organisers are making a concerted effort to reduce carbon emissions generated by the Games, according to Junichi Fujino, an environmental researcher on the city’s task force. All medals will be made from metal extracted from recycled consumer electronics, including about 6.2 million used mobile phones. The Olympic torch is made from aluminium waste, and the podiums from recycled household and marine plastic waste. Electricity for the Games will come from renewable sources.

first_imgMinister of Youth and Sports, Elvis Afriyie Ankrah on Monday stormed the training camp of International Boxing Organization Bantamweight aspirant Joseph Agbeko ahead of his impending championship bout against Colombian Luis Melendez to wish him well and also assure his teams of governments’ support to enable him defeat his opponent.The minister was at the training camp to monitor the boxer’s preparations ahead of this major boxing extravaganza alongside the Acting Director of the National Sports Authority Madam Attipoe.He was impressed with the boxers’ training regimen and assured all present that government was ready to support him in any way possible to bring glory to the Nation. He again reiterated the point that the days where least financed sports were literally neglected and that the Mahama Administration would make sure that the Ministry of Youth and Sports exercised its responsibilities in a fair and just manner than it existed in the past.The Ministry has been heavily criticized for over concentrating on football to the detriment of the other sporting disciplines and this, the honorable minister says would cease under his administration.“I am here to acquaint myself with Joseph’s preparation ahead of this major international about to know if there is anything we can also do to support him. It has been quite a while since we boasted of two or three world beaters and this opportunity cannot be fluffed. The days of David Kotei Poison and Professor Azumah Nelson should be revived. It is obvious from the little I have seen here that the boxer is leaving nothing to chance and the best we can do from our end as a nation is to support him go past the Colombian boxer and bring honour and pride to this nation.I want to assure him that His Excellency Mr President is keeping tabs of his preparation, he told Joy Sports.Joseph Agbeko was scheduled to take on Colombian opponent Luis Melendez on Saturday March the 8th at the Accra Sports Stadium but the fight has been rescheduled for March 22nd due to what promoters describe as technical challenges.last_img read more
