Foreign media will be tracked by GPS at Tokyo Olympics

Saturday, 08 Jun, 2021 0

Overseas journalists covering the Tokyo Olympics will have their movements tracked by GPS.

It is a move to allay fears of local residents that organisers can safely manage the Games.

Overseas media are the only foreigners permitted to the Olympics other than athletes and team officials.

Games organisers have banned all foreign spectators.

All the reporters must file a full list of places they wish to visit for their work, such as hotels and sports venues.

“To make sure that people don’t go to places other than the places where they are registered to go, we will use GPS to strictly manage their behaviour,” Tokyo 2020 chief Seiko Hashimoto said.

Reporters will be asked to stay in designated hotels rather than private homes.

Organisers said athletes will also have their movements restricted and must take daily Covid tests.
