The Tokyo Olympics 2020 that was scheduled to happen a year back was stalled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The entire tournament has been shifted to 2021 and will be taking place from 24th July to 9th August in Tokyo, Japan.
The Summer Olympics has always been one of the most-watched sports online and live, because athletes from all over the world will be representing their nations in a flurry of sporting events and hope to bring laurels to their nations. All the sporting events will be followed by the masses and watched worldwide.
Tokyo accomplishes the rare feat:
Every country dreams of hosting the Summer Olympics as it is one of the most prestigious events in the sporting calendar. The Summer Olympics generally start with an opening ceremony that is full of pomp and grandeur that highlights the host country on the world map. The indigenous artists and stars showcase their culture and art through the opening ceremony that has unlimited glitz and glitterati.
Tokyo has achieved the unique feat of becoming the only Asian city to host the Summer Olympics twice. With its first Summer Olympics hosting during 1964, Tokyo has achieved one of the rarest feats of hosting this gala event twice.
