There will be more mixed-gender events at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. They will be in archery, sailing, triathlon and other sports. There will be mixed relays in athletics and swimming. A swimming champion said: "It's something that would make things a little bit more fun…[Mixed events] are great to watch."

There will also be more urban sports and more women in Tokyo. Not everyone wants urban sports, like skateboarding, 3-on-3 basketball, and BMX freestyle. These are to get more young people interested in the Games. There will be fewer athletes for traditional events like weightlifting and wrestling.
