With the 2016 Rio Olympics over, all the hype will soon die down and another four years of waiting will ensue. But that is what makes the Olympics so memorable. The four years gap in between each Olympics is strategically planned for the benefit of everyone. From the training that the athletes will need to the preparation that the next Olympic host will do, the four-year long wait is necessary in order to prepare for the next Olympics. Not only that, the long wait will also be a big factor when it comes to anticipating it. It is after all one of the most celebrated athletic competitions in the world. But what is there to expect in the next games? Here are a few things to expect for the next Olympic Games.
3. Tokyo, Japan will be the next host.
If you haven’t heard already, the 2020 Olympics will be hosted by Tokyo, Japan. Because of that, many fans of the Japanese culture are excited to see how it will be incorporated in the next Olympics. With Japan being the leading innovator in technology, who knows what kind of amazing technology will be invented just for the sake of the 2020 Olympics. Tokyo lost it’s bid for the 2016 Olympics to Rio de Janiero, Brazil. But because of the voting, Tokyo has been decided to host the next Olympics in four years time.
2. Expect big things with a big budget.
A big budget has been set aside for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. It has been announced that approximately three billion US dollars will be allotted to the expenses required for the next Olympics. That’s a lot of money just for a sports competition that only lasts a few weeks. With that in mind, you can expect a lot of modern technology incorporated in the games. Expect media to be covering all angles of the games. You definitely won’t miss anything at all with that kind of budget.
1. New sports to be introduced.
Skateboarding, Karate, and three other sports will be included in the 2020 Olympics to the surprise of many sports fans. Skateboarding is probably the one that is most anticipated because of how it has never been considered a sport in the Olympics. However, there are also backlash about that because of many reasons. Other sports that will also be introduced are surfing, sport climbing and also softball/baseball. The 2020 Tokyo Olympics is definitely something that is worth looking forward to.
