The opening ceremony for the Olympic Games is less than two weeks away on Friday 23 July 2021 and it is all systems go! There have been many challenges faced on the journey to Tokyo 2020, and it has now been announced that with the current Covid situation in Japan, there will be no spectators at any of the venues in Tokyo. This is of course disappointing, but it is also the only way that the Games can go ahead and allow our athletes – human and equine – the opportunity to display their undeniable talents to an unprecedented worldwide television audience.
We have collected all the latest news and information from the FEI, the IOC/IPC and the Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee, so from logistics and planning to veterinary, sporting and concerted communications efforts to shine a spotlight on the very best of our sport, we recommend you review the items below to ensure you are ready and poised for the Games!
For the Olympic Games, the most exciting news of the day is the DEFINITE ENTRIES are now confirmed and published on the Olympic Hub! Check out the detailed press release so that you can read all about the partnerships participating at these extraordinary Games.
