    US sprinter Justin Gatlin has been among more than 400 athletes taking part in a test event at Tokyo's Olympic Stadium, as organisers fine-tune operations and COVID-19 countermeasures


    No spectators were present as Tokyo remains under a state of emergency to tame a rise in coronavirus infections.

    The day involved 420 athletes, including nine who came from abroad to participate, with 2004 Olympic gold medallist Gatlin winning the 100 metres.
