Tokyo 2020 grateful the Lighting Ceremony of the Olympic flame will take place


Today, the Hellenic Olympic Committee announced that the Lighting Ceremony of the Olympic Flame will take place as scheduled. One hundred accredited guests, as well as media will participate at the lighting. Tokyo 2020 is grateful for the efforts of all parties involved to ensure that the Ceremony will take place while taking into consideration the latest countermeasures by the Hellenic Government against COVID-19. As part of Tokyo 2020’s commitment to delivering a safe and secure Torch Relay, the Organising Committee will reduce the size of its traveling delegation as much as possible, and will take every consideration for protecting public health as Tokyo 2020 participates in the Lighting Ceremony of the Olympic Flame.
