Tokyo marked 1,000 days until the 2020 Olympics on Oct. 28 with a ceremony that included a demonstration of new sports that will debut at the Summer Games.
"The Olympic Games have the power to bring dreams to children and cultivate a peaceful society," said Takeda Tsunekazu, president of the Japanese Olympic Committee. "The success of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games is necessary so that sport can contribute to fostering a better society and world peace."
Four floats numbered 1‐0‐0‐0 were carried through the streets of Tokyo's Chuo Ward to a main stage where a countdown display was unveiled. Organizers said 15,000 people attended the event.
In an effort to give the games a more youthful and urban appeal, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has added several new sports to the program.
The event included demonstrations of three of those sports: 3x3 basketball, skateboarding and BMX freestyle cycling.
Sports climbing, surfing, baseball/softball and karate are the other new sports added to the program. Baseball/softball and karate were added because of their popularity in Japan.
Tokyo's preparations so far have won high praise from the IOC.
"Of course there are still a lot of things that need to be done over the next three years and we must achieve them successfully," said Muto Toshiro, CEO of the Tokyo 2020 organizing committee.
Meanwhile, the flags of all 206 member countries and regions of the IOC were hung on the Palaceside Building in Tokyo's Chiyoda Ward to mark 1,000 days until the games and to express hopes for a peaceful Olympics and Paralympics in 2020. (Compiled from AP and Mainichi reports)
