The Mexican weightlifter, Jorge Cardenas, has unleashed controversy in social networks after breaking sanitary protocol during the Opening Ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics, by removing his mask when the Aztec delegation marched in front of the cameras.
The image of Cárdenas removing his mask for just a few seconds to say hello when the cameras focused on the Mexican athletes has gone viral on Twitter with several users criticizing the way of acting of the weightlifter, who could receive a sanction from the Organizing Committee, which has pointed out on several occasions how important it is for athletes not to violate the health measures established by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Graphic description of “you are seeing and you do not see” and where is the common sense?
Outside, “cancel the Olympics, save lives”
Inside, 😝 (Jorge Cárdenas)

The Sinaloa native has been working in the Olympic facilities for days and is one of the Aztec delegation’s bets to win a medal after the good results he has registered in recent months.
It is important to remember that Cárdenas increased his popularity in recent days due to a video he posted on his TikTok account about the cardboard beds in the Olympic village. The video, so far, has more than eight million views.
