John Rahm an almost certain medal prospect in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics was disallowed from competing because he turned out covid positive despite full vaccination.
He was found to be positive in June and was forced to withdraw from the Memorial tournament, then.
There are no details of his second covid positive test a month later. Most probably if it was a PCR test, it has picked up dead remnants of the covid virus.
Rahm had to take four PCR tests in the United Kingdom before coming to Tokyo. He failed three consecutive tests as per the Spanish Olympic Committee.
Rahm, as per reports, was administered the Johnson and Johnson vaccine. The explanation provided for the first positive covid test in June was that he competed within 14 days of vaccination.
