About 11,000 athletes from 204 participating nations are to compete in the Tokyo Olympics 2020.

The Olympic Games  will run until August 8, 2021

Early this month, the Olympics organizers banned overseas spectators and set a cap on domestic viewers at 50 percent capacity, up to 10,000 people.

It is following the declaration of the fourth state of Emergency in Japan from July 12, 2021, to August 22, 2021, due to the surge of coronavirus infections in the country.
