The Wider Image: Japanese boxing nurse has Olympic dream crushed by COVID
Arisa Tsubata, 27, a nurse and a boxer, shops for her breakfast at a convenience store on her way to the hospital where she works, in Tokyo, Japan, April 19, 2021. Tsubata has trained around her work shifts for over a year to prepare for a final Olympic boxing qualifier in the hope of making it to the Tokyo Games this summer. That dream was shattered earlier this year after the International Olympic Committee (IOC) decided to cancel the boxing qualifiers due to take place in June and to allocate spots based on the rankings of recent years instead. "It's very disappointing," said Tsubata. "I had been working so hard for a year after the postponement of the Olympics and it's so frustrating that I don't even have the right to compete."
