U.S. Olympians Chant Jill Biden’s Name As First Lady Cheers On Swimmers In Tokyo

Members of the US Swimming Team cheered and chanted from the stands, US First Lady Jill Biden, who sat in front of the pool and waved as the swim began.

With no 15,000-seat fans at the Tokyo Water Center on Saturday, masked teams had enough room to disperse into socially remote locations above deck. The US contingent waved tiny American flags and beat red, white and blue Thunderstix, while the Germans hung their large flag over two rows of seats.

While waiting for the session to begin, the Americans chanted “Dr. Biden, Dr. Biden “and clapped his hands.

There was no conventional electricity that normally flows through the Olympic swimming pool. The teams shouted the names of their swimmers during the race, when the sound of splashing water could be easily heard and music thundered.

Earlier in the day, Biden watched a 3v3 basketball match with French President Emmanuel Macron and hosted a softball party at the US Ambassador’s residence.
