By Rubén Morales Iglesias: One of four alternates on the United States gymnastics team for the Tokyo Olympics, Kara Eaker, has tested positive to COVID-19 and another gymnast of the four is in isolation at a Japanese hotel because of contact tracing said international reports.

USA Gymnastics said on Monday that Olympic champion Simone Biles and the other five members of the US gymnastics team were not affected. USA Gymnastics also said Eaker was asymptomatic.

Eaker reportedly said she had been vaccinated. The six members of the regular team have all been vaccinated.

Biles and the other members of the main team posted pictures of themselves on social media showing that they are well.

The US Olympic and Paralympic Committee released a statement that said that the Japanese COVID-19 regulations were being followed.

“One of the replacement athletes for the women’s artistic gymnastics team received a positive COVID test on Sunday, July 18. After reviewing the implemented COVID protocols with members of the delegation, the local government determined that the affected replacement athlete and one other replacement athlete would be subject to additional quarantine restrictions,” USA Gymnastics said in a statement.

The Olympic athletes were moved to separate lodging and training facilities where they will continue their preparation for the Games said USA Gymnastics.

“The entire delegation continues to be vigilant and will maintain strict protocols while they are in Tokyo.”

Several athletes and accompanying persons from different countries have reported positive four days shy of the Olympics inauguration.
