American volleyball player Taylor Crabb tested positive for Covid at the Tokyo Olympics

Crabb is “fine and healthy and should be allowed to play, in my personal opinion,” Trever Crabb told the NewsNews affiliate in Los Angeles. His brother Trevor Crabb, who is also a professional beach volleyball player, called the situation “terrible.” Crabb, who is 29, and his 45-year-old teammate Jake Gibb, had been scheduled to square-off against a pair of Italians in a preliminary match on Sunday at Shiokaze Park, which sits beside Tokyo Bay.

Crabb’s infection was detected over the weekend shortly after he landed in the country and he could soon be heading home to Hawaii. Word of Crabb’s diagnosis came on the same day that the competition in the Olympics, which officially gets underway Friday, kicked off with host team Japan trouncing Australia 8-1 in women’s softball.

That Crabb was even in Japan was only thanks to an arbitrator who reduced his second suspension in 2019 for violating the terms of his first suspension by coaching at a volleyball camp for girls, SCNG reported. So far nearly 80 people connected to the Olympics, including a half-dozen athletes, have tested positive for Covid-19, according to a tally compiled by Reuters. Crabb was controversial choice to represent the U.S. He had been suspended for two years in 2017 by USA Volleyball, which is the sport’s governing body, for drinking with an underage girl and other misconduct, the Southern California News Group reported.
