After a tumultuous 2020 due to the Covid 19 outbreak, the postponed Tokyo Olympics 2020 are now officially underway.
Japan is no stranger to the Olympics, with the country having already hosted three Games with the 1964 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, the 1972 Winter Olympics in Sapporo and the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano.
The Tokyo Olympics 2020 will make Japan the third-most frequent Olympic host country in history with four, behind only the United States (nine) and France (six).
Let's have a look at the top five countries at the Tokyo Olympics 2020 at present
China: 28 gold, 16 silver and 16 bronze medals
USA: 21 gold, 25 silver and 16 bronze medals
Japan: 17 gold, 6 silver and 10 bronze medals
Australia: 14 gold. 4 silver and 14 bronze meals
ROC (Russia): 12 gold, 21 silver nd 17 bronze medals
Currently, India ranks 61 and has won 1 silver and 1 bronze medal so far. The silver medal was won by Mirabai Chanu and the bronze was lifted by PV Sindhu. Some of the heartbreaking defeats at the Tokyo Olympics 2020 are that of Mary Kom, Deepika Kumari and Indian men's hockey team.
A historic feat already achieved, Indian women's hockey team would aim for more glory when it takes on Argentina in the semifinals of the Tokyo Olympic Games 2020 on Wednesday. A bunch of 18 fearless and determined Indian women did the unthinkable when they stunned three-time champions Australia 1-0 on Monday to enter the Olympic semifinals for the first time. Drag-flicker Gurjit Kaur rose to the occasion when it mattered and converted India's lone penalty corner in the 22nd minute to surprise the world number two side.
