Narinder Batra, president of the association, said on Tuesday that it does not take long to get out of Tokyo airport and that arriving athletes should not be stressed, as they will have to wait a long time to complete the paperwork. Batra, also a member of the International Olympic Committee, will spend three days camping in a hotel provided by the IOC, until July 23. “When I arrived in Tokyo today, people were scared to take a long time to get out of the airport. It only took me an hour to get out of the airport.”
“It was 30 minutes from that time for the COVID-19 test. If there was no COVID-19 test, it would only take half an hour to collect the luggage and get it out of the airport,” he added.
He said the situation is not so bad in the Japanese capital and Athletes should not take enough stress.
“Please don’t take the stress off. It will make it easier for you to get out of the airport. The athletes are being taken from another channel and will get out quickly (from the airport),” he said.
“We’ve explained to everyone that if you miss something, there’s a declaration form and you can fill it out and get out of there (from the airport),” he added.
A contingent of 47 members, including 26 athletes, will be the second major team to leave for Tokyo, the first to leave on July 17th.
“Athletics is growing even though we are missing a medal so far (at the Olympics). I don’t see that day so far and it’s time to break what didn’t happen at the Olympics,” he said.
Lalit Bhanot, chairman of the Planning Committee of the Athletics Federation of India, also said that he has had relations with the chief chef of the Indian contingent and his deputy and said that it is not difficult to get out of the airport and get to the village.
