"It's not easy, at all," he said.

According to Liu, Over 250 people of the Chinese delegation, such as teams of sailing, table tennis, archery, women's football and taekwondo, have arrived in Japan.

We have seen the great efforts made by the Japanese side to provide all the services to different delegations, and our athletes, coaches and staff have felt the warmth and friendliness of the organizing committee staff and volunteers, said Liu.

"The Olympic Village is clean and tidy, the food at the athletes restaurant is delicious and healthy," he said. "We appreciated the work of the organizing committee of the Games."

Liu reiterated that the Chinese delegation will strictly abide by the rules made by the organizers on epidemic prevention and control, calling all the Olympic delegations to fully support and cooperate with the organizers to make the Games a success and let the athletes shine on their stage. Enditem
