Rhythmic gymnastics will have its pre-Olympic test

The series continues, it will soon be complete. The organisers of the Tokyo Games have announced an upcoming pre-Olympic artistic gymnastics test event. It will take place on May 8th at the Ariake Gymnastics Center (pictured above), the day before the pre-Olympic track and field event. Unsurprisingly, the competition will be held behind closed doors, and will be reserved for a single national entry, with the athletes entered wearing the team colours of Japan and the Tokyo Women’s College of Physical Education. A mixed zone is planned. But it was also last week at the pre-Olympic track cycling event, where it was ultimately canceled as the media were forced into virtual interviews.
