Olympic 10K Marathon Swim course at the Odaiba Marine Park in Tokyo Bay at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games

The 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games are the Games of the XXXII Olympiad, 56 years after having organised Japan's first Olympic Games from 24 July to 9 August 2020. The 2020 Games of the XXXII Olympiad will be the most innovative ever organised, and will rest on three fundamental principles to transform the world: striving for your personal best (achieving your personal best); accepting one another (unity in diversity); and passing on a legacy for the future (connecting to tomorrow).

Aligning with the reforms advocated by Olympic Agenda 2020, the Tokyo Games will use as many existing competition venues as possible, namely those built for the Games in 1964, such as the prestigious Nippon Budokkan for judo, the Baji Koen Park for equestrian events, and the Yoyogi National Gymnasium for handball. The Tokyo National Stadium, where the Opening and Closing Ceremonies and athletics competitions will be staged, will be completely revamped and replaced by a new arena.

Odaiba Marine Park

The Odaiba Marine Park in Tokyo Bay will hold the open water swimming events as well as the triathlon swim legs.

Olympic Heritage

In 2020, Japan will host its fourth Olympics Games after 1964 Summer Games in Tokyo, 1972 Winter Games in Sapporo, 1998 Winter Games in Nagano.
