The International Olympic Committee’s (IOC) Executive Board(EB) approved the event programme for the Olympic Games to be held in Tokyo, 2020
It’s going to be all about Japanese ‘omotenashi’ (traditional hospitality) at Tokyo 2020. A major focus will be on unity in diversity and working on leaving a positive legacy for future generations.
IOC President Thomas Bach said: “The fascinating new events that we approved, together with the five new sports that were added to the Tokyo 2020 program last year, represent a step-change in the Olympic program. I am delighted that the Olympic Games in Tokyo will be more youthful, more urban and will include more women.”
