“The Tokyo 2020 schedule is substantially different from our previous Olympic time tables. But will offer the vast majority of athletics fans attending the Games the opportunity to see Olympic medals being decided, with finals scheduled in 15 of the 17 sessions in the main stadium” Paul Hardy, said.
The organization of finals in the morning, at the request of the International Olympic Committee, will enhance the visibility of athletics in all time zones.
The distance events at the stadium remain in the evening sessions to reduce the risk of very hot conditions for our endurance athletes, while the road events will start as early as possible in the morning.
The new calendar also takes into account the traditional doubles and the historic addition of the 4x400m Mixed Relay, the first time athletics combines the talents of male and female athletes in a single event at the Games.
The decathlon and heptathlon will be held together in the same two-day period from August 5th to 6th. The schedule will allow enough time for the 400m specialists to participate in the new 4x400m mixed relay event that will be played on the second day.
