Excitement is building for the Olympic Games as Tokyo 2020 officially celebrated its “One Year to Go” milestone today as well as Paralympic games in 2020.
Tokyo 2020 marked the occasion with a jam-packed event all throughout the day and a ceremony delivered to National Olympic Committees and athletes at the Tokyo International Forum.
All of us are very excited about the games and all of preparations that are being proceeded now, because the para taekwondo will debut as Paralympic sports.
So we introduce the schedule of upcoming Paralympic games:
There will be 72 participants at the Paralympics: 36 men and 36 women, 6 weight categories (3 men’s -61, -75, +75, 3 women’s -49, -58, +58). Moreover, according to the latest classification data in each weight category 4 sports and weight categories will be presented.
We want to encourage everyone to be a part of this tremendous milestone in sports history. Despite being sportsmen or organizer, you can participate as a volunteer.
