According to Japanese officials, a member of the American women’s gymnastics team tested positive for coronavirus on Monday just a few days before the Olympics in Tokyo were to begin.
The gymnast, whom authorities did not publicly identify, tested positive during training for games in Narita, about 35 miles east of Tokyo, according to city officials. She is between 10 and 19 years old.
After arriving in Japan on Thursday, the gymnasts stayed in their travel arrangements and practiced at venues but did not spend time in the city according to the city. Another team member who was identified as a “close contact” by the gymnast is put “on standby”.
No other details, including what her condition was, were available.
