Olympic Games Tokyo 🏆 – Dates: Friday, July 23, 2021 – Sun, August 08, 2021; Live Text at FootballBetExpert
Let the games—finally begin! The world has been holding its breath for months wondering if the 2020 Olympics would ever be allowed to take place in their anointed city of Tokyo amid the still-ongoing virus crisis. But after a yearlong postponement and lots of vaccination shots, it looks like thousands of the best athletes on the planet will indeed be gathering in Japan later this month—although spectators will not be allowed to do the same, according to the latest state of emergency declared in Japan.
The opening ceremony is due to take place on Friday 23 July. However, some events will be held before then:
Archery and rowing events will also be held on the day of the opening ceremony.

The Olympic Games are back this year and will get underway in Tokyo later this month.
Originally due to be held in 2020, the event was postponed amid the disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic, which brought plans for large gatherings and events to a standstill.
Despite the break to the traditional four-year Olympic cycle, you may still see the Games being referred to as Tokyo 2020.
There will be 33 competitions and 339 events across 42 venues.
As the world gears up for one of the biggest sporting events on the planet, here’s what you need to know.
Unfortunately no overseas spectators will be allowed to watch the Games in person, due to COVID restrictions.
It certainly will feel different not hearing the crowds burst into thunderous applause at the twists and tumbles of the gymnasts and the lightning speed of the athletes across track and field.
Wrestling, baseball/softball, karate, skateboarding, surfing and sport climbing are being added for the 2020 Olympics.
