It's not too bad, it's already light at 6am. I think someone said it before, 6:45am EST (11:45 GMT) to 7:50am EST (12:50 GMT). If that's right it'll be in more or less half an hour.

Well, I would check the official Tokyo 2020 Twitter page. They might update with some news on the official logo. If not, check the official IOC or IPC pages on Twitter or Facebook.

It might as well be, I don't know why it's not. There are plenty of finished games in the Games section of the forums that should be moved to archives...


The tension is palpable...

Maybe i was wrong about 19:20. Nevertheless this must be around when the OC will start in 2020, so NBC will definitely not broadcast live. Wont matter since I think I'll be in Japan in 2020 for this.

Not bad, actually. I like the retro and simplistic feeling of it. Just what I expected from Japan. And of course, i'm glad they included the rising sun :D it was an element which had to be there.

I missed the full presentation though. All i got was this short video.

I really like this one. That retro feel is definitely there, and it's very simplistic. Of course, we just got it now, so give it time to grow and I think we'll all find it iconic.

I can already see it embroidered....

Wow! They're definitely not what I expected. I like the fact that they're not only a red dot as many other logos coming from Japan. I'd like to know what they mean but at first sight they don't look bad to me. I don't like the font either.

Here's the full info about them https://tokyo2020.jp/en/emblem/ as well for the long version of the video

Well, my prediction was sort of true. Remember when I said some pages ago the logo would be based on the letter T (because its also the emblem of the Tokyo municipality) ?

Don't like the font, don't like how close it is the the emblem either.

Waiting to hear the explanation on the emblem itself. Im a fan of the way both emblems have a very similar but distinctly different feel like Londons logo

Hmmmm.....

Will give it some time.

Honestly, I expected them to take the Rio route and produce something beautiful, safe and uncontroversial. But they've gone the Pyeongchang route and that's thrown me a bit.

The effect of the emblem when it moves kind of reminds me of those old CBC ident animations from the 70's though

That's...unexpected. What's the blurb for it?

It says "Let's Come Together As One. Let's Create The Future" ...everything was nice until I saw the main font.
