Some of the world’s greatest athletes hang a left at the life-size anime robot in their race for Olympic gold.
With the Tokyo Olympics taking place under pandemic conditions, non-press spectators have been barred from the stadiums and arenas where events are taking place. It’s a slightly different story with outdoor events that run through public spaces, though. So during the cycling portion of the triathlon, the athletes were riding by in sight of some of Tokyo’s citizens…and also under the watchful gaze of one of Japan’s most famous robots.
