Ugandan weightlifter goes missing in Tokyo


A Ugandan weightlifter disappeared from an Olympic training camp in Japan, leaving behind a note saying he wanted to find work, Japanese officials said on Friday. 

Authorities were searching for Julius Ssekitoleko, 20, who failed to show up for a Covid-19 test and was not in his hotel room, host city Izumisano said in a statement. 

Ugandan sports officials said the athlete had recently found out he would not be able to compete at the Games because of a quota system.
