Athletics Federation President Derartu Tulu said the Ethiopian Athletics Federation, which is on its way to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games on Tuesday, had a hard time arriving at the Tokyo International Airport.
In a statement to #Ethiopia_Check, Commander Athlete Derartu Tulu said the delegation’s leaders stayed at the airport for about 8 hours and the contestants arrived at their hotel several hours later.
“This was because people from other African countries who were traveling with us were suspected of commendation. Form filling and other processes took a long time. It was not coordinated,” he added.
