Tokyo 2020 test events are meant to measure three essential elements
By Tokyo 2020
The Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (Tokyo 2020) has announced its revised test event calendar, following changes made in the wake of the postponement of the Games to 2021.
The new updated calendar covers test events for 18 Olympic and Paralympic disciplines, including Para athletics, Para swimming and wheelchair rugby.
The test events will test three essential elements: the field of play (competition area) for each event, the use of technology, and workforce - with a particular focus on technical aspects including countermeasures against COVID-19.
In addition, Tokyo 2020 will re-examine and review the content of test events that were scheduled prior to the postponement of the Games in collaboration with International Federations and in accordance with Olympic Agenda 2020, including the New Norm in order to further improve efficiency and reduce costs.
In response to the COVID-19 situation, the Organising Committee will implement infection countermeasures and plan to conduct comprehensive tests of various aspects of venue management, including the handling of spectators at selected test events.
Some aspects of the test events are still under review. Any changes will be announced by Tokyo 2020 as soon as they are decided.
