The XXXII.

Tokyo Olympics are in full swing.

We'll give you an overview of which competitions are taking place tonight.

Tokyo - blue, yellow, black, green and red: the colors of the Olympic rings will flicker every day on television sets around the world for a good two weeks.

The Olympic Games are held every four years, now it's that time again.

From July 23 to August 8, around 11,300 athletes from 206 nations are expected in 33 sports.

The German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB) sends 432 of them into the race - and they all have one big goal: medals.

Even if the competitions in Japan take place completely without spectators and with strict hygiene regulations, the athletes from all over the world are highly motivated.

Olympia 2021: which competitions will be held tonight?

Japan's capital Tokyo is hosting the Olympic Games for the second time since 1964.

The games were originally supposed to take place in 2020, but the event was postponed for a year due to the global corona pandemic.

Although the situation in Tokyo has not really improved, the organizers stuck to the event - moving the Olympics to another country at short notice is impossible due to the years of preparation.

There will be a total of 339 competitions, and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has added five new sports: baseball / softball, karate, sport climbing, skateboarding and surfing.

The competitions in Germany will drag on from midnight until the early afternoon due to the time difference.
