July 23, 2021 - August 8, 2021 - The 2020 summer Olympic Games, the Games of the XXXII Olympiad, take place in Tokyo, Japan.

The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games feature 339 events in 33 different sports, encompassing 50 disciplines.

Basketball returns to Tokyo, this time with a new spin-off tournament – 3x3 Basketball. This new streamlined game has its roots in 1980s American street sports and features only one hoop.

It is the second time that Japan, and specifically Tokyo, has hosted the Summer Olympic Games – the first being in 1964.
