Athletes are traveling to Tokyo from around the globe, with extra testing and precautions due to COVID and fewer fans in the stands. Some of those athletes will be traveling from Illinois or have Illinois roots, including U.S. Track and Field Team Member Darryl Sullivan, who is originally from Marion, Illinois. The 21st was joined by Sullivan to discuss COVID-19 procedures, marijuana usage among Olympic sports athletes and how he's feeling leading up to the competition.
