The world is not doing well, the whole world is grieving with the Covid-19 pandemic which is not over yet. However, we don't always have to grieve, we can unite in sport. Even though we have different backgrounds, we will be united by emotion in Tokyo on 24 July - 9 August 2021. Indeed, the Tokyo Olympic Games were supposed to be held in Summer 2020, but due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Olympic Games were postponed for a year.
After making various preparations and adjusting to the pandemic conditions, finally the Olympic Games will be held in Summer 2021. Hopefully the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 (2021) will run smoothly though there will be no spectators in the stadium. So, the motto of Olympic Game Tokyo 2020 is "United by Emotion".
This is precisely the power of sport – its ability to connect people through their emotions and it’s what Tokyo 2020 intends to depict with the Motto.Source
I am sure the athletes will compete fair play and the games will entertain audiences around the world. Hundreds of countries have already sent their athletes to compete in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. Supporters will only watch through live television broadcast and live streaming. The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games committee forbid foreign spectators for attending in the stadium.
The Tokyo 2020 Olympics Opening Ceremony will be held at the Olympic Stadium on Friday, 27 July 2021. The Tokyo 2020 Olympics Opening Ceremony will be held behind closed doors or without spectators due to the corona virus pandemic. It's so special Olympic Games, you know it's not an easy task to hold a huge event when Pandemic of Covid-19 is still going on.
As no spectators could attend the opening ceremony, It must be so queit. There will be only around 10,000 guests allowed to attend including diplomats, sponsors, to members of the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
Some of the main events that will be presented at the Opening Ceremony of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics are the welcome of representatives of the Government of Japan, the raising of the Olympic flag, the taking of the oath of representatives of athletes and coaches, the parade of the contingents or participating countries, and the lighting of the Olympic torch flame.Source
Rio Waida and Nurul Akmal Will Carry Indonesian Flag
I would be so curious how many medals will be won by Indonesian athletes. We know that Indonesia is superior on Badminton, that always win medal in every games. I hope this time Indonesia will win more medals, not only in Badminton but other sports as well.
In the opening ceremony, two Indonesian athletes will carry our national flag. They are Rio Waida and Nurul Akmal. Rio is surfing athlet and Nurul is a female weightlifter who will compete in the +87 kg number.
And it's also more special for me because Nurul Akmal is from Aceh Province. It's my province, so I am proud of her. And Nurul Akmal is the first female athlet from Aceh to play in Olympic Games.
So let’s be united by emotion in Tokyo. Let’s support our national team and athletes. The Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 is the most special one in history, as it’s held in the pandemic.
