Urban sports in pre-Olympic mode


No more time to lose. Long interrupted because of the sanitary crisis, the series of pre-Olympic events is resuming at a steady pace in Tokyo. The organizers of the Games, who have just completed last week the marathon and athletics test-events, announced two new competitions. Basketball 3×3 must be held from May 14th to 16th at the Aomi Urban Sports Park. Starting the next day, Monday, May 17th, the BMX pre-Olympic event will be held at Ariake Urban Sports Park (pictured above). Both competitions will be held behind closed doors.
