Mao pins worn by Chinese athletes could test Olympic rules
- The image of Communist China’s founding leader Mao Zedong made an unanticipated appearance at the Tokyo Olympics, and the International Olympic Committee said on Tuesday it was “looking into the matter.”
- The gesture – Mao badges worn by two Chinese gold medalists during their medal ceremony – risks being considered a violation of rule 50 of the Olympic Charter, which prohibits political statements on the podium at the Games in Tokyo – and at the upcoming 2022 Winter Games in Beijing.
- After winning the women’s track cycling sprint on Monday, Bao Shanju and Zhong Tianshi wore Mao badges. The Communist leader who proclaimed the founding of the People’s Republic of China in 1949 remains an iconic figure in China 45 years after his death in 1976.

Table tennis: German women’s team boast new Olympic medal
German paddlers Shan Xiaona, Petrissa Solja and Han Ying, who won silver five years ago in Rio, are aiming for another team medal at the Tokyo Games after beating their South Korean opponents 3-2 in the women’s team event Tuesday.
Hockey is about gaining momentum and keeping that, maybe it was the green card. It’s a momentum thing, we lost it and against an opposition like Belgium it’s hard to come back once you lose momentum. To come third you have to be the third best team, so we have to beat Australia or Germany to get the bronze medal. We’ve already started, I’m already pushing the fact that it’s a team mentality first. My approach is to understand that being a member of a team we have to keep our heads up and prepare for the bronze medal game.
