While Tokyo 2020 Olympic may seem like forever from now, the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games will be here before we know it. Start lists haven’t been finalized at the time of publishing but there’s plenty of swim-bike-run action to gamble about and look forward to. Fans from all over the world can buy Olympic Triathlon Tickets online.
Most of the triathlon action will be centered around the high-rise buildings and white sandy beaches of Odaiba Marine Park in Tokyo Bay. Tokyo last hosted the Olympic Games back in 1964, and the country is currently updating many of the original venues and stadiums featured over 50 years ago. The Tokyo 2020 Event Programme has also placed a strong prominence on gender equality, and these upcoming Summer 2020 Games will be the most gender-balanced in history.
From a new triathlon race format to an exciting Olympic and Paralympic triathlon course, here’s what to expect for the triathlon events in Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
The men’s triathlon event goes off on Monday, July 27 (7:30 to 9:50 a.m.; that’s 13 hours ahead of EST), and the women’s event takes place on Tuesday, July 28 (7:30 to 10:00 a.m.). It is an average Olympic-distance format, with both the men and the women competitors completing a 1.5-kilometer swim, a 40-kilometer bike ride and a 10-kilometer run.
We’ve been waiting for a mixed relay at the Olympics, and Tokyo 2020 will include this action-packed format for the first time. Involved as one of several Olympic 2020 introductions, the mixed relay will start on Saturday, Aug. 30 (8:30 to 10:30 a.m. JST). These innovative 24 hours has been dubbed “Super Saturday,” and we couldn’t agree more.
The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games will feature medal events for four classes for both men and women: PTS4 (men), PTWC (men/women), PTS2 (women), PTS4 (men), PTS5 (men/women) and PTVI (men/women). The Paratriathlon events follow a race format and consist of a 750-meter swim, a 20-kilometer bike and a five-kilometer run at Odaiba Marine Park. Fans who want to watch the live competition of Olympic Swimming can get Olympic Swimming Tickets online.
The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Paralympic Games start on Aug. 25 and run through Sept. 6, and it’ll be the largest in history with 4,400 athletes, 540 medal events and 22 sports.
As mentioned, the ITU mixed relay format will make its debut at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics—providing another opportunity for the world’s best triathletes to win an Olympic medal. Maybe the most action-packed format in the sport of triathlon, with some of the most dramatic finishes and fun-to-watch races dating back to its inception in 2009.
It’s a super-sprint triathlon that features a 300-meter swim, an 8-kilometer bike and a 2-kilometer run that is completed by teams comprised of four members, ordered female-male-female-male. In short, each member completes the course and tags the next member, with plenty of fast-paced action for viewers to enjoy.
Triathlon aside, there’s plenty of new sports and events making their first appearance at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
A grand total of 15 new events will make an appearance, including events in table tennis, track and field, water polo, cycling, swimming, shooting, basketball, fencing, rowing, boxing, and more. The general mixed relay format has also crossed over into other sports, including judo, archery, track & field, swimming, table tennis, and shooting.
After years of being mocked, action sports will finally be included in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Skateboarding, surfing and sport climbing are now official Olympic sports. Men’s baseball and women’s softball make a return after missing the past two games, and karate will make its entrance as well.
