TOKYO 2020

2020 Olympic schedule

By Ninian Carter

July 24, 2020 - August 9, 2020 - The 2020 summer Olympic Games, the Games of the XXXII Olympiad, take place in Tokyo, Japan.

With IOC aiming to make the Games more “youthful” and “urban”, and to increase the number of female participants, there will be a extra 30 medal events, five new sports, and 15 new events within existing sports, including 3-on-3 basketball, freestyle BMX and Madison cycling, and new mixed-gender events in several sports (athletics, swimming, table tennis and triathlon).

The introduction of freestyle BMX and the madison to the cycling programme make that sport the third largest at the Olympics in terms of medals, with 66 up for grabs.

EDITORS: Please note that the schedule (as at December 5, 2018) is subject to change by the organizers
