A year late due to and in the shadow of the outbreak of the corona virus, the opening ceremony of the 2020 Olympic Games was held today (Friday) in Tokyo, the capital of Japan.

The 32nd Olympics were supposed to take place in the summer of 2020, but were postponed after the outbreak of the virus.

The games in Japan will be held without an audience and will end on August 8.



204 countries participate in the Games and are represented by 11,238 athletes.

Because the order of the delegations participating in the opening ceremony was determined according to the Japanese A-B, Israel will be the 17th delegation to march in the stadium.

90 Israeli athletes went to Tokyo, but only 35 of them participated in the opening ceremony.

The flag will be carried by the triple jumper Hannah Knyazeva-Minenko and the swimmer Yaakov Tomarkin.
