This is it – the teams have landed, the Olympic Village is open and the Tokyo 2020 Olympics are now underway. While the current circumstances aren’t what we hoped for as Tokyo hosts the world’s biggest sporting event, the Summer Olympics are finally going ahead after a year’s delay. Major adjustments had to be made to ensure the event would be as safe as possible for everyone involved, but don’t let spectator bans and cancelled plans dampen your enthusiasm for this historical spectacle.
After all, the Olympic and Paralympic Games have grown to become far more than just a series of spectator sports. Not cheering in the stands? Soak up the history of the Olympics through exhibitions, or revisit iconic moments of previous Olympic events via the official online broadcasters of Tokyo 2020.
Unlike live spectator events, some of these features can also be accessed online regardless of where you are in the world. Here are the best ways to still experience the Tokyo 2020 Olympic spirit even though the public is not allowed into the stadiums.
