A former Tokyo Olympic organizing committee board member and three people from a clothing company that was a surprise sponsor of the 2020 Games have been arrested on bribery suspicions. Prosecutors say Haruyuki Takahashi, a former executive at advertising company Dentsu, is suspected of receiving bribes from the former head of Aoki Holdings Inc. and two company employees. Aoki produces affordable “recruit suits” that youngsters fresh out of school wear for job interviews and their first jobs. It was a surprise pick to dress the Japanese Olympic team. The alleged bribery is believed to be linked to sponsorship of the Tokyo Games and products related to the Olympics. Japan is pursuing the 2030 Winter Olympics for Sapporo.

One of the stars of Australia’s gold medal-winning women’s rugby sevens team at the 2016 Olympics has transitioned to male. Olympic champion Ellia Green realized as a young child that a person’s identity and a gender assigned at birth can be very different things. Green tells The Associated Press that transitioning since retiring from professional rugby has been the best decision of his life. Realizing that sharing that experience could be lifesaving for others is what compelled Green to go public in a video to be shown at an international summit aimed at ending transphobia and homophobia in sport. The summit is being hosted in Ottawa as part of the Bingham Cup rugby tournament.
