The world has been affected by Covid-19 in so many ways. We’ve all had to postpone or cancel so many annual events. Even those that take place less frequently like the 2020 Tokyo Olympics were pushed back until 2021. The Olympics have only been cancelled 3 times, once during WWI and twice during WWII; this is the first time they have been delayed. For a select group of athletes and fans, they were particularly disappointed because this was to be the first year for their sport. These new sports will include Sport Climbing, Surfing, Skateboarding, Karate and Baseball/Softball. According to the BBC there will be various events played within each sport. 

Below are some youtube links showing off these amazing sports:

US Olympic Speed Climbing

US Olympic Surfing

US Olympic Skateboard Team

US Karate Team – Sakura Kokumai

Who Would Make TEAM USA Baseball in 2020?

With the addition of the first three listed, it is easy to conclude that the Olympics are trying to appeal to a younger demographic. However, we will have to wait until 2021 to see if their efforts succeed!
