With the Olympic
Games deferred to July next year, many would think it gives athletes time to
prepare for the World tournament.
Pacific Sprint King
Banuve Tabakaucoro says with the current global pandemic forcing nations to
implement strict COVID-19 restriction measures, Fijian athletes are trying
their best to keep up.
The 28-year-old Fijian sprinter Banuve Tabakaucoro has high hopes for the Tokyo Olympic qualifications, but training has somewhat been a challenge, especially during this time when strict COVID-19 restrictions are in place, almost everywhere in the world.
With public gathering
restrictions directly affecting sporting bodies in the country, Tabakaucoro
says he feels that the quality of his preparations has dropped.
Tabakaucoro hopes that COVID-19 restrictions are lifted soon to allow athletes from different federations get back on track, focusing on their Tokyo Olympic qualification events.
