Tokyo 2020 announces initial Test Event Calendar

The Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (Tokyo 2020), announced the first part of its planned test event schedule that kicked off this Autumn and will run until May 2020. Approximately 50 test events will be held – some during scheduled international sporting events that happen to be taking place in Japan during the build-up to the Tokyo 2020 Games, with others comprising dedicated Olympic and Paralympic test events organised by Tokyo 2020.

The test events will give organisers and the Japanese public the opportunity to experience sport in the Olympic venues and in some cases for the first time. In addition to allowing Tokyo 2020 to get operational experience, some events will also let the Japanese public get a glimpse of the world's best athletes in those disciplines, including potential Olympic and Paralympic Games competitors.
