The Tokyo2020 Olympics began in style, a year delayed due to Covid, with an amazing Opening Ceremony. Starting from a seed and growing like a green shoot, Japanese customs, traditions and creativity were on show, with theatre and art aplenty.
The teams representing the Nations of the world were followed by the lighting of the Olympic Flame.
This is their 4th Olympic games hosted in Japan, including 2 Winter Games.
|1964 Summer Olympics||10–24 October 1964||Tokyo|
|1972 Winter Olympics||3–13 February 1972||Sapporo, Hokkaidō|
|1998 Winter Olympics||7–22 February 1998||Nagano, Nagano|
|2020 Summer Olympics||23 July – 8 August 2021||Tokyo|
Here is the schedule for today from Team Ireland.
The Opening Ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics was spectacular.
The Irish team, led by flagbearers Irish boxers Harrington and Irvine, made a most respectful entrance as they gestured by bowing towards the Japanese volunteers and stewards, who in turn bowed back. It was really something beautiful to set the tone for the next 2-3 weeks.
