Although it is 2021, the organisers have decided to retain its official name Tokyo Olympics 2020 as the mega event was postponed due to Covid-19 outbreak last year.
The rescheduled event will kickstart with a mega opening ceremony that will be held at the newly constructed Japan National Stadium on Friday.
The Tokyo Olympics 2020 is scheduled to go on from July 23 to August 8 with the participation of around 11,000 athletes from as many as 206 countries. The athletes will compete for 339 gold medals across 33 categories of sports.
28 members, including six officials and 22 athletes, of the Indian contingent, will participate in the opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics on Friday after the organisers suggested restricting the number of athletes attending the curtain-raiser due to the pandemic.
Overall, 127-member Indian contingent will enter the Tokyo Olympic Games with soaring expectations of returning with their best medal haul ever.
