The Closing Ceremony of Tokyo Olympics 2020

IOC President Thomas Bach declared the Tokyo 2020 Olympics ended on Sunday, calling the pandemic-affected games the hardest Olympic adventure. The 2020 Summer Olympics is an international sporting event that will take place in Tokyo, Japan, from July 23 to August 8, 2021. The Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics were initially scheduled to take place from July 24 to August 9, 2020, but were postponed owing to the continuing Covid-19 Pandemic.

At the Tokyo closing ceremony on Sunday, the Olympic flag was presented to Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo for the 2024 Games. Hidalgo received the flag, which was adorned with the five Olympic rings, from International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach and waved it.

The Closing Ceremony

The closing ceremony will take place on the final day, August 8, after a few more events have been completed. The closing ceremony’s cultural events will be centered on the subject “worlds we share,” which represents the fact that every one of us lives in our own world.

The artistic performance will showcase the cultures of both the host country, Japan, and the Olympic host country, France, in 2024. The Antwerp Ceremony, a tradition that has been carried on in all closing ceremony events since the Antwerp 1920 Summer Games, will be one of the key features of the closing ceremony. It represents the official handing over of the torch from the current host to the next.

How will the Olympic Games be held in the midst of the Pandemic?

The Tokyo 2020 Olympic qualification event was set to take place in early 2020. The locations of several of the qualifying events scheduled for February 2020 have been relocated to areas with a lower risk of coronavirus.

The Boxing qualification event was originally scheduled to take place in Wuhan, China—the epicenter of the COVID-19 outbreak—but was eventually moved to Amman, Jordan. The third round of the women’s football qualification event has also been moved from China to Australia.

Should the Tokyo Olympics be held?

NHK, a Japanese public broadcaster, released the results of a telephone poll of 1,200 participants. The Tokyo 2020 Olympics should be postponed or canceled, according to 63 percent of those polled, while the Tokyo Olympics should be held, according to 27 percent. The survey was performed between the 11th and 13th of December 2020.

Highlights of the Olympic

The 32nd edition of the Olympics has concluded after 15 days of nonstop action. We witnessed several amazing performances from world-class athletes who gave it their all while proudly and honorably representing their respective countries.

Athletes from all over the world put on some spectacular performances, setting a slew of new World and Olympic records in the process.

India at the Olympics

It was also a fantastic edition for the Indian contingent. India won a total of seven medals, which is their highest performance in the Olympics, surpassing their previous best of six medals in London. Mirabai Chanu earned India’s first weightlifting medal in Tokyo. Following that, PV Sindhu, Ravi Kumar Dahiya, the Indian Men’s Hockey team, LovlinaBorgohain, Bajrang Punia, and Neeraj Chopra made the entire country proud with their accomplishments.
