Mixed-gender events have been approved for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. If you thought Katie Ledecky was ruling during the Rio Olympics, just wait until Tokyo. Fans from all over the world can book Summer Olympic Swimming Tickets online from our trusted online ticketing market platform.
The International Olympic Committee (IOC) announced swimming game will include a 4x100m mixed-gender relay and it also includes 2 further new events, Men’s 800-meter freestyle, women’s 1,500-meter freestyle races.
Frank Busch, USA Swimming National Team Director said:
“The IOC’s decision to expand the number of events in swimming at the Olympics is outstanding for the sport and our athletes. Any time you can give the athletes more chances to win Olympic medals, that’s an incredible step forward,”
Male and female both swimmers will swim the same exact distance events, for the first time in modern Olympic history.Which means that Ledecky — the most ruling swimmer in the world — will get to swim another event in which she owns the world record time (15:25.48). She set the record, and beat the silver-medal finisher by 15 seconds, at the 2015 world championship held in Kazan, Russia. If Ledecky adds this event to the five she swam in Rio, she will have a chance to gain six gold medals in one Game.
When asked to the Ledecky about that Olympics not having the same distance for men and women, in spite of, other FINA and other International Competition including both, she said she wanted to see the 1,500 free added to the games.
Ledecky said at U.S. Olympic trials in 2016:
“I would love for them to, I just swim whatever they have in the meet. I don’t know how much of a say I would be able to have on that. I think the one thing is just with the history of the 800, that the 800 should still be in the Olympics, and they should add the 1,500 for the women and the 800 for the men.”
