Track Star Allyson Felix’s Fifth Olympics Is About More Than Medals

by News Update

Following a traumatic birth experience, track star Allyson Felix turned to activism—testifying before Congress about Black maternal mortality and writing an op-ed about her now former sponsor Nike’s policies on protections for pregnant women. Now Felix has her own shoe line and she’s admired as much for her advocacy as for her athleticism.» Subscribe to NBC News:

The Japanese government is accusing the Republic of Korea government of providing korean meal boxes to the Korean athletes participating in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, and the Japanese government continues to argue that food from Fukushima is safe.

However, the Korean national team meal service center has been operated every time since the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Japan also operated a separate Japanese food service facility for the purpose of preventing food poisoning at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics. The United States also decided to procure its own meals using its own ingredients during Tokyo Olympic period.

There are suspicions that Japan's exceptionally sensitive reaction to Korean meal boxes is an attempt to divert public opinion elsewhere after the goal of the "Fukushima revival Olympics" has actually failed. Due to the spread of Covid-19, the Tokyo Olympics are more emphasizing the 'safety and safe Olympics' than the 'revival Olympics', and even this is being shaken by the explosive spread of Covid-19 in Japan.
