  5. Tokyo 2020 event programme to see major boost for female participation, youth and urban appeal The Executive Board (EB) of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) today approved the event programme for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020. The decision marks a key milestone in the evolution of the Olympic programme by introducing youth and urban innovations, significantly improving gender equality, and reducing the overall number of athletes hence reducing the Games’ footprint. Commenting on the decision, IOC President Thomas Bach said “The fascinating new events that we approved today, together with the five new sports that were added to the Tokyo 2020 programme last year, represent a step-change in the Olympic programme. I am delighted that the Olympic Games in Tokyo will be more youthful, more urban and will include more women”, Bach added. The EB decision will lead to a net increase of 15 events, an overall reduction of 285 athletes from Rio 2016, and the highest representation of female athletes in Olympic history. In Tokyo, the number of mixed events will double from nine in Rio 2016 to 18. All new events will make use of existing venues. Today’s decision is a significant step towards achieving the 50 per cent gender balance at the Olympic Games in both athletes and events, as clearly stated by Olympic Agenda 2020. Four new International Federations (IFs) will move to gender-balanced in events for the first time (Canoe, Rowing, Shooting and Weightlifting). In terms of athletes, six IFs will move to gender balance for the first time (Canoe, Judo, Rowing, Sailing, Shooting and Weightlifting). At discipline level, gender balance is achieved in BMX Racing, Mountain Bike and Freestyle Wrestling. The programme also includes youth-focused and urban-based additions such as Basketball 3x3 and BMX Freestyle, on top of Sport Climbing and Skateboarding. Basketball 3x3 was a successful innovation at the Youth Olympic Games in Singapore 2010 and Nanjing 2014. Sport Climbing and Skateboarding were proposed along with Baseball/Softball, Karate, and Surfing by Tokyo 2020 last year. The next edition of the Summer Youth Olympic Games, which will take place in Buenos Aires in October 2018, will already feature BMX Freestyle, Karate and Sport Climbing as well as several new innovative urban sports such as Breakdance and Roller Sports. ... https://www.olympic.org/news/tokyo-2020-event-programme-to-see-major-boost-for-female-participation-youth-and-urban-appeal

  7. Tokyo organizers reach agreement on allocation of 2020 costs TOKYO (AP) — Organizers of the Tokyo Olympics reached a broad agreement Wednesday on the allocation of costs for the 2020 Games with the metropolitan, national and local governments of the seven prefectures and four other cities hosting events. Governments outside Tokyo that are to host competitions agreed on basic principles concerning cost sharing. Yoshiro Mori, the head of the organizing committee, said the agreement was a step forward. “I think our preparation has been at least one year behind,” Mori said. “We want to speed up the process now so that we can catch up.” The seven prefectures hosting events are Hokkaido, Miyagi, Fukushima, Saitama, Chiba, Kanagawa and Shizuoka. The four other cities are Sapporo, Saitama, Chiba and Yokohama. Representatives from seven prefectures expressed satisfaction that the organizing committee and Tokyo Metropolitan Government will pay for expenditures to build temporary facilities for venues outside the capital. Local governments had previously objected to the idea that they would have to shoulder part of the costs to build temporary facilities. Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike said the broad agreement was “a big step forward” that would allow stakeholders to accelerate preparations toward staging a successful Olympics in 2020. “With the games coming up in three years, we have to rush our preparation,” Koike said. All the parties additionally agreed to set up a management committee for collaborative projects which aims to further reduce costs. The committee will regularly review the specific tasks related to games preparation and operation. Organizers announced in December a rough estimate for the total cost of hosting the games of between 1.6 and 1.8 trillion yen ($13-$15 billion). http://www.artesianews.com/1462337/tokyo-organizers-reach-agreement-on-allocation-of-2020-costs.html

  10. Lionel Messi: Argentina forward's ban lifted after appeal to Fifa Lionel Messi is free to represent Argentina in their World Cup qualifiers after his four-match international ban was overturned on appeal. The 29-year-old Barcelona forward was suspended for directing "insulting words" at an assistant referee during a 1-0 win over Chile in March. He missed one match - Argentina's 2-0 World Cup qualifying loss to Bolivia.. A Fifa appeal committee said while his behaviour was "reproachable", the evidence was not sufficient. He will now be available for matches against Uruguay, Venezuela and Peru as Argentina fight to secure a place at next summer's World Cup finals in Russia. A fine of 10,000 Swiss francs (£7,800) was also lifted. ... http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/39822240
  11. Sauber confirms deal to use Honda Formula 1 engines in 2018 Sauber has confirmed it will ditch year-old Ferrari engines for a Honda customer supply from the 2018 Formula 1 season. McLaren has had an exclusive works deal with Honda since the Japanese manufacturer returned to F1 for 2015, so Sauber will become its first customer of the V6 hybrid turbo era. Sauber is in a rebuilding phase following a change of ownership last summer, and is using uncompetitive 2016 Ferrari engines this season. The Swiss team has been in advanced talks with Honda since March about a deal, and has now confirmed Honda will become its technical partner. The new tie up with Honda will end Sauber's association with Ferrari, which stretches back to 2010 following BMW's withdrawal from F1. ... http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/129238/sauber-seals-honda-engine-deal-for-2018

  13. Elementary students may choose mascot for 2020 Tokyo Games: organizing committee April 26, 2017 (Mainichi Japan) The Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games announced on April 25 that the nation's elementary school children will likely choose the Game's mascot from the final candidates via voting. The committee is expected to give each elementary class across Japan one vote on the final mascot candidates and will, as a rule, choose the one the children select the most. "Seeking the opinions of the children will help boost the excitement for the Games," says organizing committee Vice Director General Masaaki Komiya. "I want to also use it as a chance to teach the children about leaving a legacy." The committee is consulting the Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Ministry and other related parties to decide the application requirements and screening method by mid-May, and a committee review panel will narrow the candidates for the mascot down to three or four by the end of the year. The vote will then be held at the beginning of 2018 with the intention of deciding the design of the mascot by the first half of the year. According to the education ministry's School Basic Survey, in academic year 2016, there were 20,313 public and private elementary schools nationwide, making up a total of 271,764 classes. The organizing committee says it will be the first effort of its kind in the history of the Games. https://mainichi.jp/english/articles/20170426/p2a/00m/0na/003000c
