The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games is a multi-sport event, which was held between the 23rd July – 8th August 2021.
The games were originally supposed to be held in 2020, but had to be postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
However, they were successfully held in the Japanese capital this year. This is the first Olympic Games in history with no public spectators, due to Coronavirus restrictions.
Several new sport additions were added to the Games this year, including the likes of 3×3 basketball, baseball, skateboarding and freestyle BMX.
Great Britain came 4th overall on the medal table, earning a total of 65 medals in the two week period.
Aside from the various sporting competitions, there were also some fantastic eyewear on show from the athletes in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games this year!
