Tokyo 2020's vision for the 2020 Games is to offer the Olympic Movement and the world new Horizons - a legacy of new growth and new potential never seen before. Its summer Games plan is one of the most compact in Olympic history, it offers a unique stage on which the world’s best athletes can achieve superior performances.
These Games will see the introduction of additional disciplines within several of the Summer Olympics sports, including 3x3 basketball, freestyle BMX and Madison cycling, as well as further mixed events. Under new IOC policies that allow sports to be added to the Games' programme to augment the permanent "core" Olympic events, these Games will see karate, sport climbing, surfing and skateboarding make their Olympic debuts, and the return of baseball and softball.
The 2020 Olympic Summer Games will no doubt expose new generations of potential athletes to the power of Olympic spirit.
