There will be more mixed-gender events and more women the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) said men and women would compete together archery, athletics, judo, sailing, shooting, swimming, table tennis, and triathlon. There will be a 4x400m mixed relay athletics and a 4x100m mixed relay swimming. British Olympics swimming champion Adam Peaty told the BBC that having mixed events Tokyo would make the Olympics "more fun". He said "It's something that would make things a little bit more fun….It's great to mix things from what they've been so long as it adds a little spice and [mixed events] are great to watch."
The IOC also announced that there would be more sports the Tokyo Olympics. IOC president Thomas Bach said the Games will be "more youthful, more urban and include more women". Not everyone is happy the introduction the new events. Some people said it was wrong to include urban sports like skateboarding, 3--3 basketball, sport climbing and BMX freestyle. These are to try and get more young people to watch the Games. Having newer sports means there will be fewer athletes more traditional events like weightlifting and wrestling. Tokyo will be the most gender-balanced Olympics ever. Women will make 48.8 per cent of athletes who will compete the Games.
