Olympic Games 2020 in Tokyo - dpa's multimedia coverage

When Tokyo submitted its bid for the 2020 Olympic Games, no one could have foreseen that a global pandemic would change everything, leading to postponed Games, a ban on spectators from abroad and the absence of that international coming together, which in normal times is one of the main characteristics of the Games. 
Nonetheless, thousands of athletes have been preparing for years just for this very chance to present themselves to an international audience. This alone guarantees thrilling competitions and a host of fascinating stories behind the scene.

Whatever the outcome of the Games this summer, dpa will be there to deliver the stories from inside and outside the venues and backed up by exciting photos, live result widgets and videos from our partner Stats Perform.
