First Olympic beach volleyball match canceled due to COVID


TOKYO (AP) – The first match of Olympic Beach Volleyball Tournament was canceled due to a Czech player testing positive for COVID-19.

Markéta Sluková tested positive earlier this week, knocking her and partner Barbora Hermannova out of the Tokyo Olympics.

The Czechs are supposed to play against a team from the host country that will make their Olympic debut. Instead, the Japanese couple Megumi Murakami and Miki Ishii won by default.

Sluková is one of at least three members of the Czech team to have tested positive since their arrival in Japan, including men’s beach volleyball player Ondřej Perušič.

The team said it is investigating whether the outbreak of COVID-19 is related to the airline’s charter flight to Tokyo. | First Olympic beach volleyball match canceled due to COVID
