Nine sports will be mixed gender events in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) announced on Thursday (18 June), with the increase from the seven sports at the Rio Games.

Athletes and Social Media

Social media platforms have significantly improved the ways in which they present important information and news. Not just that, but the way in which news is created has changed too. In the past times, in order for someone to distribute a story, it had to be done through professional reporters. Today, with the help of social media anyone can deliver news or promote themselves. For example, on Twitter there is limited number of characters which people use to deliver main points about something. If the reader wants to get engaged more and read the full story then they can further research the person that has tweeted the particular thing in question.

Sports Athletes and Social Media

            One of the main reasons why athletes use social media platforms is because that is the best way for self-promotion and engagement with fans. Sports teams and their players often use social media outlets to inform the public about games, team information, game information, for increasing sales of tickets, product sales, and to increase awareness about their brand. Athletes use social media to discuss different things with fans, to interact with other players, teammates, and to promote themselves in best way possible.

            Athletes have found social media platforms to be very effective for their own promotion. Through these channels they can freely voice their opinions about games, competitions and tournaments. By doing that, they are also sharing something about their personality. Unlike past times, athletes do not need someone in between them and their fans. They can market by themselves and speak their minds about different matters. The more they engage, the bigger their popularity. Truth is that social media give more power and bigger control to the athletes when they communicate with others.

            In conclusion we can say that athletes are very dependant of social media platforms. They offer best opportunity for self-marketing, promotion and fans engagement. Pretty much all sports athletes use them because it increases their popularity. Besides popularity boost, some athletes also earn money from social media outlets. They use the channels to promote different products and brands, which in turn increases their revenue as well. Social media platforms offer plenty of opportunities for everyone and athletes have recognized that long time ago. These were the main reasons how and why they use social media. All platforms have become very powerful tools for marketing.
