The heat is on at the Summer Olympic Games 2021. No position is guaranteed and placement yesterday is not guaranteed today. The athletes are facing a lot of pressure to perform and attain medals, but being mindful of one’s health and wellbeing is more important.

While Japan holds on to the number one ranking, they have fallen to fourth place in terms of the medal count.
