Florijn leaves quarantine hotel in Tokyo

Finn Florijn has left the quarantine hotel in Tokyo and is flying back to the Netherlands.

Florijn tested positive for the corona virus on Friday 23 July after competing in the skiff heats.

After skateboarder Candy Jacobs, taekwondoka Reshmie Oogink and an anonymous staff member of the rowing team, Florijn was the fourth Dutchman to enter the quarantine hotel.

They have been allowed to return home for the past few days.

Only tennis player Jean-Julien Rojer, head coach Josy Verdonkschot of the women's rowing boats and his assistant Isabelle Jacobs are now stuck in Tokyo after their positive corona tests.

This Canadian journalist is calling for the 'wind dance'.

We can only agree with this, so that Berkhout and Zegers can take action as quickly as possible.
