Tokyo Together is a new and exclusive programme featuring over 200 Olympian and Paralympian Online Experiences.

Through Airbnb, fans can now book to meet Tokyo 2020 Olympians and Paralympians, as well as non-competing athletes and Tokyo 2020 insiders, live from Japan.

If you are interested in sharing your passion with guests to earn supplemental income, sign up to become a host.

Created to bring people around the world closer than ever to the magic of Tokyo 2020 at a time when fans are unable to offer their support in person at the Games, Tokyo Together is a unique and exciting opportunity that allows you to share the Olympic spirit and meet fans from around the world, all while earning valuable extra income to support your career.

“In light of the current circumstances, we wanted to create a unique alternative to bring together athletes and fans, while keeping the same sense of discovery and exclusivity,” said Kirsty Coventry, IOC Athletes’ Commission Chair, on Tokyo Together. “The Olympian and Paralympian Experiences platform is a fantastic opportunity for athletes to build a personal relationship with their fanbase and feel their support, while the platform will also bring the incredible Olympic spirit to people across the globe.”

Featuring over 200 Olympian and Paralympian Online Experiences on Airbnb, Tokyo Together means fans can book to meet Olympians and Paralympians competing at the Games this summer, as well as non-competing athletes and Tokyo 2020 insiders, live from Japan. Many athletes will continue to host and offer activities after the Closing Ceremony, as part of the Olympian and Paralympian Experiences on Airbnb – if you’re interested in hosting your own online Experience and sharing your experiences from Tokyo 2020, you can register your interest today.

Connect with your fanbase

Over 200 athletes have joined the hosting community this summer, leveraging an opportunity to earn money by sharing their skills and passion for sport with the world. Ten IOC Refugee Olympic Team members and refugee scholarship-holders are among the Experience hosts, including swimmer Yusra Mardini whose “Redefining Resilience” Experience will involve an open dialogue with her fanbase.

Other hosts include skateboarder Sky Brown, who will become Great Britain’s youngest-ever Olympian when she competes at Tokyo 2020 at the age of 13 this summer, and will discuss “Yusra Mardini” after the Games with her dad as co-host; US surfer John John Florence, who will present a “Tokyo Forecast” Experience before leaving for the host city; and Pita Taufatofua, the summer and winter Olympian who will provide an insider’s take on Tokyo 2020 directly from the Olympic Village.
