    TOKYO 2020 Venue Plan

    Tokyo 2020 marathon course (Tokyo 2020) © Copyright Tokyo 2020 race walking courses (Tokyo 2020) © Copyright The marathon course will take in both modern and traditional districts of the city, starting and finishing at the Olympic Stadium and passing symbolic Tokyo landmarks along the way. These will include the Kaminarimon ("Thunder Gate") in Asakusa, guarded by the deities of wind and thunder; the Imperial Palace, the primary residence of the Emperor of Japan; Ginza's upmarket Chuo Street; the Zojoji temple, with the landmark Tokyo Tower as a backdrop; and Nihombashi bridge, the historic centre of the Japanese capital. The climax of the Tokyo 2020 marathon race will see the athletes running the final stretch leading to the Olympic Stadium uphill. Below, watch a time lapse tour of the marathon course. Marathon running in Japan has a long history and proud tradition. The Japanese have truly embraced distance running, and the Tokyo Marathon, one of the world's top six city marathons, now regularly attracts huge crowds of supporters. This year's event drew 300,000 applicants, with nearly 36,000 runners participating and more than one million people cheering on the streets. Tokyo 2020 for the IAAF https://www.iaaf.org/news/news/tokyo-2020-marathon-and-race-walk-courses-ann Looks like the marathon and race walking events are being moved to Sapporo because of the heat. Sapporo could now become the first city to host events (or at least medal events) for both the Summer and Winter Olympics https://www.olympic.org/news/international-olympic-committee-announces-plans-to-move-olympic-marathon-and-race-walking-to-sapporo

    Swimming At Rio 2016

    Not a big deal but, I notice that during TV coverage the races finish on the right side of the TV. I could be wrong, but in almost every previous Olympics Swimming event the swimmers finish on the left side of the TV. I know I won't affect the swimmers, but most TV viewers are familiar in finishing the race of the left side.
