Tokyo Games 2021 at Mumbai Airport
Few sporting events have the global appeal of the Summer Games. For 14 days, the world’s most elite athletes compete to be faster, higher, and stronger to attain the pinnacle of sporting achievement, the Gold Medal.
This year’s event, held in Tokyo, Japan, is unique in many ways. Delayed a year by a worldwide pandemic, witnessed by what can be considered the most limited live audience in stadia, and in a nation facing an overwhelming resurgence of Covid-19 infections. Yet, the Summer Games have truly espoused the spirit that the ancient tradition embodies and trudged through the myriad of logistical and, health, and safety challenges to emerge with flying colors.
As populations surface from months of lockdown, the Summer Games serve as a much-needed reason to cheer. A global event, the Tokyo Games 2021 are truly bringing communities closer as audiences the world over are glued to their devices in support of their country’s athletes, to revel in their glories, and just take in the spectacle of sporting’s greatest event.
