The Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee (TTOC) has vowed to continue collaboration with Ōsaki, despite the Japanese town cancelling a pre-Olympics training camp, and is focused on ensuring bio-security ahead of the Games.

Ōsaki, in the Kagoshima prefecture, had been due to host both TTOC and Chinese Taipei delegations ahead of Tokyo 2020, but will no longer do so.

"They now believe it is in the best interest of Ōsaki and Team TTO, purely on the basis of the bio-secure environment and the absolute safety of the Team TTO delegation and the people of Ōsaki town, that the pre-Games training camp be cancelled," TTOC President Brian Lewis said, as reported by the Trinidad Express.

Children and from Ōsaki remain set to take part in the TTOC's Olympic Day celebrations on June 23 and an Olympic Youth Camp however, after Lewis said the TTOC proposed continued online collaboration a a gesture of goodwill.

Per the Trinidad Express, Lewis described looking after the health and safety of the TTOC's Tokyo 2020 delegation as "paramount and non-negotiable", and detailed planned bio-security measures including increased testing and encouraging all delegation members to get vaccinated.

All delegation members will be subject to three polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests in the 14 days prior to leaving for Japan - including two in the four days immediately before departure.

The Trinidad Express report also detailed that the TTOC is applying for an exemption for its track and field team to arrive in Japan on July 21, nine days before competition starts.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has said previously that competitors can only arrive at the Athletes' Village five days before their event, and must leave two days after.

Final versions of the playbooks which outline coronavirus countermeasures stakeholders are expected to adhere to during the Games should be published in the next week.

Playbooks were launched by the IOC, Tokyo 2020 and International Paralympic Committee to reassure athletes and other stakeholders that the Games can go ahead as planned.

Trinidad and Tobago has won a medal at six Summer Olympics in a row, with Keshorn Walcott keeping that record going by winning javelin bronze at Rio 2016.
