Another Star to miss the Olympics


Recommended Posts

The International Golf Federation was informed on Sunday that Jon Rahm tested positive for COVID-19 as part of the final testing protocol before leaving for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 and therefore is unable to compete for Spain.




The Spanish Olympic Committee stated that without adequate time to find a replacement and comply with the necessary health protocols required for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, Spain will only be represented by Adri Arnaus.


In accordance with the IGF’s Late Athlete Replacement Policy, the next available athlete identified by the IGF Reallocation Reserve List will replace Rahm, following nomination by his National Olympic Committee.


This is the second star to test positive after Bryson Dechambeau had to withdraw at the weekend for testing positive with Patrick Reed taking his place.


The men’s Olympic competition begins Thursday, July 29 (local time) at Kasumigaseki Country Club.
