Rio Olympic silver medalist Nikita Nagornyy told tass.ru that all the Russian gymnasts on the national team have been vaccinated against Covid 19.


“All of us have been vaccinated already. Everything’s great, we have the antibodies,” said Nagornyy.

The Tokyo Olympics is scheduled to be held from 23 July to 8 August 2021.

Current polls in Japan show nearly 70% of the population do not want the Olympics to go ahead, but the International Olympic Committee (IOC) remains steadfast that the spectacle will take place.

“I try not to think about it because there’s been a lot of conflicting information in the past year. If you’re preparing for the Olympic Games, such information isn’t helpful. So, it’s better to keep it all out and train in peace,” the three time World champion commenting on the calls for cancelation of Games.

According to Gymnovosti, the locally developed COVID-19 vaccine has been available since last year and the Ministry of Sports announced that it would vaccinate the athletes back in January. The vaccination is voluntary but in addition to the protection from the virus, it offers certain perks – athletes who were vaccinated or had COVID-19 are allowed to leave Round Lake and on weekends and will not have to quarantine when they return to the training center.
