Tokyo Summer Olympics, one of the key sport competitions of this year began on July 23. First events are about to take place on Friday - in archery, shooting, rowing and in the equestrian competition. On July 22, first softball and football matches were played. Another shooting event took place on that day, too.

The epidemic restrictions that nearly forced the authorities to cancel the Games are tough; foreign supporters are not allowed in arenas.

The competition will be running from July 23 till August 8.

As we reported, the official website of Tokyo 2020 Olympics removed the map with Crimea depicted separately from Ukraine. It has been replaced with another image, which can be seen easily.

A pop-up screen OLYMPICS - Cheer Zone with the interactive map appeared on the website. When enlarged, it features the image of Ukraine in its territorial integrity, i.e. with Crimea as part of the country. Previously, it was shown as separate from the mainland Ukraine.
