Belarus sprinter enters Polish embassy in Tokyo

Krystsina Tsimanouskaya, 24, would seek asylum with Poland, said a member of the local Belarus community who was in touch with her.

The sprinter pulled up in front of the embassy in an unmarked silver van about 5 p.m. local time (0800 GMT). She stepped out with her official team luggage, and then greeted two officials before entering the premises.

On Monday (August 2), IOC spokesperson Mark Adams told a media conference that a number of agencies were in contact with the sprinter, including the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
