Nausch Sluková latest Czech to test positive in Tokyo

The third and latest Czech athlete confirmed to have Covid-19 is beach volleyball player Markéta Nausch Sluková, who revealed she had tested positive on Thursday. She had been due to compete this coming Saturday but must instead spend 10 days in isolation.

Nausch Sluková’s agent, David Trávníček, told that the Czech Olympic Committee’s handling of the transport of athletes to Tokyo was a case of “pure amateurism”. Five members of the Czech party have tested positive for the virus since taking a special plane together late last week.
