Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games/Results in 2021

"NBC Olympics will provide unprecedented coverage of the Opening Ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics on Friday, July 23, creating a full day of Olympic programming on NBC that culminates in what is always one of the most-watched nights in television with the primetime presentation of the Ceremony. The day will begin with the network’s first-ever live morning broadcast of an Opening Ceremony (LIVE STREAM LINK), followed by a special edition of TODAY with reaction and athlete interviews and then NBC’s first-ever Olympic Daytime show on the opening Friday of the Games."

There is also Maggie Malone, who is from small town Geneva, Nebraska, which is where my wife is from.
She went to UNL for a couple years, and then transferred to Texas A8M for the last two after her family moved.
She won the outdoor national championship in 2016.
She is being coached in the Olympics by a former UNL coach, the one who started her in the javelin. (He wears his Husker gear at the Olympics.)


The results are about what could have been expected -- ie., some who were expected to win did -- Chinese in table tennis, American women in Water polos, American women in b-ball, the Germans in equestrian events, Japanese in baseball (note the rules for who could participate), that Norwegian guy in the 400 meter hurdles, Katy Ledecky in the 800 and 1500 swims, Dressel in the swimming sprints, russian team in female synchronized swimming, etc. Others who were expected to did not -- American men in running races, Simone Briles having to pause her performances, American women soccer team, some Eastern European and mid east men and women wrestlers, etc.

Some just shocked everyone -- the American 800 meter woman in the ease with which she won, Bob Fink in the 800 and 1500 swims, the guy who won the 100 meter dash, the American woman who finished third in the marathon, the Indian wrestler.

In other words, a typical Olympics.

I could not help but feel sorry for Japan, however, in that they were not able to showcase their country of which they are so proud to the entire world. Countries don't get many chances to host the Olympics. It's too bad they didn't get the chance to be the host they could be to the people of the world.

Do Olympic Athletes Get Paid?​

"What is known is the amount athletes will make if the win a medal in Tokyo. According to the USOPC website, U.S. Olympians will earn $37,500 for each gold medal at the 2020 Olympics, $22,500 for a silver medal and $15,000 for a bronze medal—the pot is split evenly for team sports.

The sums on offer are unchanged from the 2018 Winter Olympics are represent a 50 percent increment compared to the amount U.S. Olympic medalists received at the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro."
"While medal bonuses for the upcoming Olympics in countries other than the U.S. remain largely undisclosed, personal finance site Money Under 30 gathered data on Olympic medal bonuses at the Rio Olympics in 2016 and the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang two years later. Singapore came out on top, with $1 million in prize money for the gold medalists, with a silver and a bronze medal returning $500,000 and $250,000 respectively."
