The olympic games Tokyo 2020 They will finally be played from July 23 to August 8, 2021 in Japan. Initially, the appointment was agreed for 2020, but the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) forced the event to be postponed for a year on the same start date. Now everything is underway and the countdown begins for one of the most important events in world sport.

In this edition there will be 33 competitions, with 339 events that will take place in 42 different competition venues. All of them will be disputed throughout the days and the calendar of each discipline with established dates. First, the elimination rounds will be held and finally, the competitions that award medals to each delegation. Next, we will go with the following information that we have for you.

Judo at the Olympics

Judo was introduced as a men’s Olympic sport at the 1964 Tokyo Games. The event took place at the Nippon Budokan. Judo will return to this venue in Tokyo 2020. The women’s events were added to the Barcelona 1992 Olympic program.

Judo at the Olympic Games is divided into categories by weight. Lightweight athletes in the male (73 kg or less) and female (57 kg or less) categories are known for their speed and agility. They use quick footwork to get close to their opponent and execute a throw. Power and speed are combined in the middleweight category (men between 81 and 90 kg, and women between 63 and 70 kg). In heavyweights (men over 100kg, women over 78kg), wins are often achieved by power rather than speed. In recent years it has been observed that the heavyweight judoka shows faster movements, as having a higher body weight by itself did not guarantee success.

Judo at Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games

Mixed teams will make their Olympic debut at the Tokyo 2020 Games. In this format, teams of three male judokas (less than 73 kg, less than 90 kg and more than 90 kg) and three female judokas (less than 57 kg , less than 70 kg and more than 70 kg) from individual competition, will join forces to become the first team champions of Olympic judo. Countries with more comprehensive national teams of both men and women are expected to perform well in this category.
