Paralympics likely to be also held without spectators with Tokyo under state of emergency Updated: 2021-08-13 13:38:11 KST

It's now less than two weeks until Tokyo hosts the Paralympics, and it seems likely that they'll be held without any spectators.
An official decision will come next week from the Japanese government and the organizers.
But sources say they are leaning toward no spectators at the venues in Tokyo and the neighboring Saitama and Chiba prefectures, which will hold most of the events under a state of emergency.
There could be people in the stands in other regions, though, such as Shinzuoka, which will host the cycling events, but attendance there is capped at 5-thousand or 50-percent of capacity.
Team Korea will send a record-high 86 athletes to the Paralympics who'll compete in 14 different events.
The Paralympics start on August 24th and run until September 5th.
