9:48 pm
a mental coach that i talk to on very frequently. and i think it's important to have that person to kind of be able to have a sounding board to vent, to, to cry, to, to work out, work through things with. we put people in athletes on, on a, on a high stage in so many people know or, but i think when you think about it, people forget about the day to day grind. it demands that all that height takes a toll on a person. it's not just the americans talking about simone biles, australia is ery, on sidmouth. sustaining of social media has helped her focus at the game so much. so she said a new and limping record in the pool in the 200 meters free. so that is her 2nd goal of the games. i don't know much about my bible, it's not for me personally, i've deleted every social media app off my phone. i think it's not just messages
9:49 pm
and everyone is really beautiful and it's good to look at it a little bit. it can sometimes be that overwhelming. so i'm only really speaking to my family a tiny bit, not that much a that, sorry. i just tried to not read anything because i think that adds external pressure. adrian mckenna, mon, is a sports psychologist. he says that needs to be more discussion around mental health in sport. this should have been going on 4050 years ago. shame is taking so long to get to this place. but regardless, it's so important if you of the average international app late. what is the biggest contribute to wherever they went? all they lose. i always say mental. i say the physical preparation is important, but largely there any maintaining the level and what really matters is how this is on the di and for days leading up to the event. and it's just so important. and yet we don't put enough effort into the training of it, but things are changing. you need to take it just as seriously as the physical
9:50 pm
training that take nature training, but tactics, training. if most international athletes will tell you that winning the guy and winning the competition is way more than 50 percent mental, then surely they should be training mentally. every single die. nice thing about mental training. you don't have to do it very long. it can be as little as 2357, maybe as much as 10 minutes. that's what needs to be, be consistent every day and it should be done with a professional. you don't ask an architect to help you make a garden and it's the same thing with mental skills. you should use a mental skills expert and do it consistently. fee. do you have one bath? rebecca lumpy gold medals with a 2712 victory of the new zealand in the rugby 7 final. the batch which is paid in an empty stadium was a reality check for what it's been like. hosting the games, doing a pandemic. and the richardson has more from the stadium in tokyo feet, he will not 1st ever olympic gold medal in 2016 in rio when the 7th game was
9:51 pm
brought into the olympics for the 1st time. and they retained their title incidentally, argentina, winning the bronze medal in that competition. and again, this event, a reminder of what these olympics could have been. this venue where so many games were played at the rugby world cup in 2019 such a massively popular event in japan. but for that final also was, was a few members of the media, a few officials and some pipes in crowd noise coming in through the loudspeakers. but that, of course, is the reality of hosting and olympics in the middle of a pandemic. again, let's go back to the top story now where 20 athletes from african countries. several african countries including a kenya and ethiopia, will not be allowed to take part in the track and field events. that's because they missed doping or n t doping tests. michelle broken is out, gave the former director of ethics and anti doping at u. k. sport. michelle. thank you tom. how surprising is this given that the olympic track and field events
9:52 pm
starting just a few days time? well, i think people will be surprised that an international federation's independent integrity unit has actually taken such really unprecedented and aggressive action in insisting the national federation play their part in preparing athletes for cr games and to be drug tested effectively. ok, how good or bad of a job in your opinion is the athletics integrity unit doing well. i think it's doing a very good job. i mean there is always doubt that an international federation is looking after its own people. but in this instance, it's quite clear that the, the criteria for qualifying for the olympic games was set out to include a level of drug testing. and that was an expectation that has not been forthcoming
9:53 pm
in certain countries. and therefore, 18 athletes of being rude and eligible to have been replaced. so that brings us up to the 20. so as i say, it's pretty unprecedented. and in a climate where there is also a testing program undertaken by the international and pick committee, it shows how strong we have to that extent triggered to unit really is being order with covered 19 doing the rounds. we do live in extraordinary times. how has the pandemic impacted anti doping procedures? well, there's been a significant impact because there hasn't been the level of testing going on. that one would expect, because the pandemic has prevented the face to face contact between testers and athletes. and therefore, that allowed suspicion to grow that somehow athletes must be cheating. and what
9:54 pm
confidence can we have that we're actually seeing drug free performances? so it's absolutely vital that that is that reassurance testing going on that that has been that late program of testing. so even if drugs have been used, we would catch those people who had cheating. so i think we needed that very strong response from sport from national and doping organizations and other organizations to make sure they're delivering. you know that the confidence level 2 s leads or michelle her can just one quick question in terms of the cleanliness of these games . how clean do you foresee them being at this stage? well, inevitably it's, it's the pinnacle of many athletes careers. there will be people who will be cheating. i just hope we're going to catch them and not spoil other people's chances at these games. or we're going to leave it there for now. michelle broken,
9:55 pm
thank you so much for your time. much appreciated. think okay, we're going to leave it there for now. i'll be here again in the $2100.00 gmc out with another sports news update, but that's it for now. him. all right, thank you very much for that, peter. now there's been no shortage of controversy at this years and then pick games. one of them involve the decision by south korea squad to bring its own shift . some people see that move as an insult to added to ready frayed relations added to rather. 5 already frayed relations between the 2 countries, rama brought reports from sol taking over a small hotel close to the athletes village in tokyo, south korean chefs prepare meals for their entire olympic team. it's aimed at keeping the more isolated during the pandemic, but also to make sure no local ingredients carry radiation from the fukushima
9:56 pm
nuclear plant disaster. 10 years ago. we have put more effort in this time because of the corona virus concern. and because people are quite sensitive over the origin of ingredients, such as those from fukushima, certainly the team members are all in favor of the special menu. because they screen the ingredients of it a more of us as i think it's safer. but the food program has irritated many in japan, which insists all its food is safe. given the long and troubled relationship between japan and south korea, it doesn't take much to bring goals animosities to the surface and the lympics is offered and full opportunities to do just that. dancing with the torch relay months ago. the official map of japan with the relay route showed a tiny group of eyelids which are disputed by the 2 neighbors as being japanese known as dr. in south korea, a banner proudly proclaiming them to be korean,
