Bobby’s parents have been poolside ever since his first competitive race at six years old. But mom and dad won’t be in the stands in Tokyo. Due to COVID-19, spectators are not allowed.
“It would be amazing if they could come,” Bobby said.
“Chances are we will have a better view of him swimming on TV than we would if we were there,” Joe said. “With the way COVID is working and what they are doing in Japan, they’ll be going between the Olympic Village and the venue. There wouldn’t be any time to see him. We would love to be there, but you live with what you got.”See ABC Action News
