A gold medal bitten by one Japanese mayor is set to be changed.

 

The mayor of the Japanese city of Nagoya, Takashi Kawamura, bit down the medal of Miu Goto, the pitcher of the women’s softball team who won a gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics. The International Olympic Committee, the Japan Olympic Committee, and the Organizing Committee are ready to give another gold medal to Goto.

 

According to the Japanese news agency Kyodo News, more than 4,000 complaints have been lodged against Mayor Kawamura for biting the gold medal. At a celebrity event, last week Mayor Kawamura opened the mask and bit down the medal given to him by Goto. Goto, aged 20, hung the gold medal she had won around Kawamura’s neck.

 

There was strong opposition to Kawamura on social media. He is accused of violating the Covid Protocol and squandering the player’s years of hard work.
