Greece Withdraws Artistic Swimming Team After Athletes Test Positive for COVID

TOKYO — Greece will not be represented in the artistic swimming event at the Tokyo Olympics after three new cases of Covid-19 in the Greek team, the Greek Olympic Committee (HOC) announced on Tuesday.

"Due to the three new cases of coronavirus in the artistic swimming team, the Organising Committee informed the leadership of the Greek team and that the other members of the artistic swimming team must leave the Olympic Village and be transferred to a hotel for close monitoring," the announcement said.

This meant that Greece will not be represented in either the team event or the duet events, while the three athletes were already in a quarantine hotel, the announcement added.

According to an earlier announcement, the three athletes had no symptoms while they had not come into contact with other members of the Greek mission.

A fourth member of the team had tested positive on Monday.
