Amputee Fashion Show In Japan Features Paralympic Athletes On-Ramp – Insiderfolks, Paralympic Athletes took part in the “Amputee Venus Show” in Tokyo on Tuesday. The event marked the day when the Paralympic Games were to begin.
The Olympics and Paralympics were delayed for a year as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, but the fashion show persisted.
It included a dozen models who came down the catwalk wearing the new apparel and prosthetic legs. Some Paralympic Athletes, including Japan’s Kaede Maegawa, placed fourth at the Rio de Janeiro Paralympics 2016 long jump.
“Thanks to the exhibition, there’s just one year left before the Paralympic Games,” Maegawa said. “As I was rehearsing, I felt like I was watching the opening ceremony and I was almost crying. The performance was such a wonderful experience for me.”
The Paralympics are currently set to open on August 24, 2021, and will have about 4,400 competitors. The Olympics are expected to begin on July 23, 2021, featuring 11,000 competitors.
“In next year’s Paralympics, protection and protection are significant,” said Takao Ochi, who arranged the event. “One of the goals of the fashion show was to resolve the coronavirus.”
Tokyo organisers said both events would happen, but they would have to provide specifics about how the athletes would be safe, whether spectators would be allowed, and who would pick up the bill for the delay. Estimates say that the cost of delay is between $2 billion and $6 billion, with Japanese taxpayers paying much of the bill.
