 Tokyo Games: Guinea Reverses Decision To Withdraw From Olympics

The West African State of Guinea has said it was scrapping its decision to withdraw its five-person team from the Olympics, a move that it had said was sparked by worries over coronavirus.

According to a statement made by the Sports Minister Sanoussy Bantama Sow on Thursday, July 22, 2021, the Government, after receiving assurances from the health authorities, is giving its agreement for the athletes to take part in the game.

However, TVI noted that a source close to the Government in the capital Conakry had said the decision not to send its five-person team stemmed from financial constraints.
