Commenting on 100 days to go before Tokyo 2020, Acting Director of Programs for beIN MENA Duncan Walkinshaw said: “As the official broadcaster of the Olympic Games, beIN SPORTS’ main focus is providing its viewers and subscribers with an exceptional viewing experience across all our platforms. We are tremendously excited to cover what will be a unique Olympics. As we move closer to the start of the Tokyo 2020, we are delighted to share this historic milestone with our millions of viewers across MENA”.
In an exclusive interview with beIN Sports, the Governor of Tokyo in Japan Yuriko Koike said: “Preparations for the Tokyo Olympics took years. Today we are only 100 days away from this major event. Unfortunately, the Olympics have been delayed for a full year due to Covid-19.
But that was necessary to ensure that the games are held in a safe and adequate environment”.
Koike added: “This is the second Olympics to be held in Japan. The first was in 1964, and it was the first edition to combine the Olympics and the Paralympics. We wanted the second Olympics hosted by Japan to be held after sustainable recovery; that is, after the situation returns to what it was before the pandemic. Humanity now desperately needs to overcome the situation it is experiencing as a result of the pandemic, while taking into consideration many important issues such as ensuring the principle of diversity, gender equality, and everything that might help toward the sustainability of the Olympics as a sports event”.
