Dutch Olympic skateboarder Candy Jacobs has tested positive for Covid-19 in Tokyo, ending her Olympic journey, according to a post from her official Instagram account.
Jacobs is the first athlete to announce he or she cannot participate because of the virus after arriving in Tokyo.
There have been other athletes who have tested positive before arriving in Japan and have announced they cannot participate in the Games.
"I am heartbroken," Jacobs said in her post. "Unfortunately I was tested positive for Covid-19 this morning, which means my Olympic journey ends here. I have done everything in my power to prevent this scenario, took all the precautions."
"Luckily we've been following the protocols so my fellow skateboarders still get to shine bright," Jacobs added.
"I will need some time to let my broken heart heal and recover from this. Let's go Paris 2024," Jacobs said.
It is unclear whether Jacobs was staying in the Olympic Village, though her Instagram stories show videos of the Village.
The Tokyo 2020 Games are set to officially begin on Friday.
