It is time for Tokyo Olympics 2020! This year’s Tokyo Olympics is the biggest event in the world and will be held in Japan for the first time. The 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics will take place in three different sports and four different events, spanning 51 days of competition. Tokyo will host the Summer Olympics for the first time in its history and the third Summer Olympics overall, after 1932 and 1964.
What should we expect?
The 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games will mark the 40th anniversary of the competition, and it’s going to be an exciting one. A large number of sports have been added to the program for the first time, such as Karate, Skateboarding, Sport climbing, Surfing, Baseball/ Softball, and more. 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. The decision was made following consultation with the International Paralympic Committee (IPC).
The next summer Olympics will take place in Tokyo, Japan, in 2020, and the world will be watching. The city already has a dense history of hosting the Summer Olympics and is the fifth most populated city in the world. The Olympics has always been a way for countries to show off and unite their citizens, but this year’s games will be different. With the rise of extreme weather conditions and other global challenges, the games’ mandate for sustainability has become more important than ever before.
The Olympics is always an exciting time, especially in Tokyo, Japan, of all places. What should we expect? Well, of course, a lot of fun and games in the streets, the athletes putting on a great show, and the usual medals, but also a lot of post-Olympic analysis.
