2020 Summer Olympics: Games of the 32nd Olympiad, to be held in Tokyo, Japan
The 2020 Summer Olympics , officially the Games of the XXXII Olympiad and commonly known as Tokyo 2020, is an upcoming international multi-sport event to be held in Tokyo, Japan. Originally scheduled to take place between 24 July and 9 August 2020, the Games have been rescheduled for 23 July to 8 August 2021 as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Despite being held in 2021, the Games of the XXXII Olympiad will keep the name Tokyo 2020 for marketing and branding purposes. This marks the first time in history that the Olympic Games have been postponed, rather than canceled.
