Revised Olympic Schedule for Tokyo 2021

It’s official. The IOC and Tokyo 2020 have released the revised schedule for next year.  

It’s essentially the same schedule as if the Games were held this year but with everything moved up a day.  Opening Ceremonies will now begin on 23rd July 2021 with Closing scheduled for 8th August 2021. 

There are a few starting and ending times that have been adjusted but nothing significant, which are highlighted in yellow within the new schedule. 

Also, the new schedule does not include the Athletics marathon and race walk sessions which will continue to be held in Sapporo as free events.
