Tokyo (Reuters) – The start of the Olympic Women’s Triathlon race was delayed by at least 15 minutes on Tuesday due to the windy storms hitting the course in Tokyo Bay.

Scheduled for 06.30 (21.30 GMT) local time, it is scheduled early to avoid excessive heat. The new start time is 06.45 (21.45GMT), but it could be further delayed as heavy rains still hit the area 30 minutes ago.
