After a long and heartfelt campaign, Tokyo was finally announced as the host city for the 2020 Summer Olympics! The final vote between Tokyo and Istanbul was 60-36. Congratulations!
Japan last hosted the Summer Olympics in 1964 in Tokyo. The Winter Olympics were held in Sapporo in 1972 and Nagano in 1998.
Even though it's 7 years away, many people are very excited. I hope that I will still be in Japan so that I can attend. My favorite Summer Olympic events are basketball and gymnastics!
