Tokyo 2020 sport pictograms

The Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (Tokyo 2020) today unveiled official Olympic and Paralympic kinetic sport pictograms, the first time in the history of the Olympic and Paralympic Games that these have been created. There are a total of 50 pictograms covering 33 Olympic sports and 23 covering 22 Paralympic sports. Their innovative designs aim to reflect the modern era symbolised by the year 2020 and enhance spectator enjoyment of events, both at venues and via TV broadcasting to national and global audiences.

Olympic Torch fly to Tokyo

The Olympic flag was hoisted, and the national anthems of Japan and Greece sounded, as the Olympic flame handover ceremony took place at Athens’ iconic Panathenaic Stadium. The event, which began at 11:30am local time on Thursday (19 March) in windy but sunny conditions, was significantly scaled down due to the coronavirus pandemic, and didn't include the planned cultural ceremonies from Greece or Japan. But there was no lack of emotion, symbolism, or significance.
