Three-time Paralympic champion Markus “Blade Jumper” Rehm is well aware of the widespread concern in Japan about hosting the Tokyo Games amid the COVID-19 pandemic, but he has promised to do his part to protect public health.

The 33-year-old German, who won long jump gold medals in 2012 and 2016 and another gold as a member of the 4×100 meter relay team in 2016, said he is fully vaccinated and as a games participant will follow all protective measures outlined in the playbooks.
