Tokyo Olympics 2020 Schedule and Betting Tips

The Tokyo Summer Olympics 2020 are back in 2020 after being delayed by the effects of Covid-19. Sports fans across the world will be tuning in for this huge sporting event that will take place in Tokyo, Japan.

This is the first time the Olympic games were rescheduled.

The 2020 Summer Olympics  will be largely held behind closed doors which means that spectators will not be allowed for these events.

Here are some cool things to look forward to during the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics:

New Sports in 2020 Olympics

Many new sports will be introduced during the  2020 Tokyo Olympics. This is partly due the decision of the International Olympic Committee that allows the host to add new sports.

Some of the new sports that will be introduced in the Tokyo Olympics will be 3×3 Basketball, freestyle BMX, madison cycling, karate,sport climbing,surfing, skateboarding. We will also see the return of baseball and softball which were last played in the 2008 Olympics. This comes as no surprise as Baseball is Japan’s most popular sport.

Tokyo Summer Olympics 2020 Logo

There was some controversy surrounding the initial logo for the Tokyo Olympics with claims being made that the logo was plagiarized from the logo of the Théâtre de Liège in Belgium.

The design is meant to “express a refined elegance and sophistication that exemplifies Japan.

Tokyo Summer Olympics 2020 Mascot

The mascot for the Tokyo Olympics is called Miraitowa. The mascots were selected from a competition process which took place between late 2017 and early 2018. A total of 2042 were submitted and three were shortlisted.

Japanese elementary school students were invited to make the final pick and they picked Ryo Taniguchi’s design. Miraitowa is named after the Japanese words for future and his character and is described as very athletic who has a “strong sense of justice” and is described as “very athletic”. Mirowata has the ability to teleport anywhere instantly.

No international Spectators allowed for the Tokyo Olympics

Because of the pandemic and the fact that a lot of the Japanese population failed to receive vaccinations against the virus, the government along with the organizing committee decided to take strict measures in order to protect the Japanese people.

Overseas spectators were banned from entering Japan and their tickets were refunded.

Most events will be held behind closed doors

As mentioned earlier, most events during the Tokyo Olympics will be held behind closed doors. Only events that are taking place outside of Tokyo will be allowed at limited capacity, something which could be a major disappointment for many sports fans in Japan.

This decision was made on July 8 after a rise in Covid 19 cases in Tokyo.

“Green Medals” During the Tokyo Olympics

Japan is often touted as one of the most innovative countries in the world and they proved this during the Tokyo Olympics this year by making medals from recycled electronics.

Over 8 million tons of electronic waste was collected from businesses and citizens to produce all the medals for the Tokyo Olympics starting from February 2017.

Opening Ceremony of Tokyo Olympics 2021

The opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics will be taking place on July 23 2021 at the Olympic Stadium in Tokyo. Emperor Naruhito is expected to formally open the games. The event will take place behind closed doors with social distancing. Only about 1000 VIP guests will be physically present during the opening ceremony for this opening ceremony.

Many of the performances are pre recorded while the live performances will be undertaken with proper social distancing.

The parade of nations that is a tradition of the Olympic Games will take place as usual.
