Coates, a vice-president of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and its point-man for the event, sparked a backlash last month when he said the Games would go ahead even if Tokyo were under a state of emergency due to the pandemic. Japan's government is considering ending the state of emergency in Tokyo and several other prefectures as scheduled on June 20, but keeping some curbs such as on restaurant hours until the Olympics start in July, domestic media have said.

Colombia’s president named a new ambassador to Washington on Monday, as he tries to improve his nation’s image abroad and maintain bilateral programs with the U.S. that have been jeopardized by recent abuses against protesters. President Iván Duque said that Juan Carlos Pinzón – who was defense minister from 2011 to 2015 -- will be Colombia’s ambassador to the United States, where he is expected to begin his duties in August. Pinzon, 49, had already been Colombia’s ambassador to Washington between 2015 and 2017, when Colombia’s government signed a peace deal with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia that was backed by the U.S. and ended five decades of internal conflict in the South American country.

When the elder Tange built the Yoyogi National Gymnasium as a swimming arena for the 1964 Games, its bold floating roof and spires - evoking Japanese temples and suspension bridges - became a symbol of Japan's triumphant return to the world stage after wartime defeat, helping to make Asia's first Olympics a riotous celebration of resurrection and renewal.
