Tennis Star to Miss Tokyo Olympics After Positive COVID Test

Tennis champion Cori “Coco” Gauff announced Sunday that she would be missing the Tokyo Olympics after testing positive for COVID-19. 

“I am so disappointed to share the news that I have tested positive for COVID and won’t be able to play in the Olympic Games in Tokyo,” the 17-year-old athlete wrote in a post online. This would have been Gauff’s first appearance at the Olympic games after making several Grand Slam appearances in recent years.

“It has always been a dream of mine to represent the USA at the Olympics, and I hope there will be many more chances for me to make this come true in the future,” she added.
