U.S. senator ‘outraged’ at IOC after Sam Kendricks’ positive Covid test


Senator Roger Wicker, R-Miss., expressed his outrage at the organizers of the Tokyo Olympics after U.S. pole vaulter Sam Kendricks tested positive for Covid-19 and was disqualified from competing. The senator claimed Kendricks test result was “almost certainly a false positive Covid-19 test,” and slammed the Tokyo Olympics for “rigid rules that are totally unfair.”
