TOKYO (REUTERS) – Dutch Olympic taekwondo competitor Reshmie Oogink has tested positive for Covid-19 ahead of the Tokyo Olympics, as has a member of the team staff, the team said on Thursday (July 22).

“I have done everything I could and have worked so hard to get so close to the Games. This is the end of my career,” Oogink said in a statement.

The positive test means that both will have to quarantine for 10 days.
