Olympics 2020 Ends: (Colorful Photos) List Of Top 20 Countries With Medals

The 2020 Tokyo Olympics came to an interesting end yesterday with amazing performances from all the participants, this year records a new set of new Olympic medalists while some former champions crash out.

It was an unusual way to finish a series of games that had been upended by the COVID-19 epidemic and then altered by political, sporting, and personal drama. The initial goal of the Tokyo Olympics was to highlight Japan’s recovery from the terrible earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear catastrophe that struck the country in 2011.

It was also a stark contrast to the far more festive park scene that unfolded in Paris, where tens of thousands of sports fans waving the tricolour flag thronged into a fan zone across the river from the Eiffel Tower as Paris prepared to take over the Olympic baton from Tokyo for the 2024 Summer Games.

There were inspiring records set and passionate wins with a lot of sentiments in this series. Allyson Felix became the most decorated American Olympian in track and field, surpassing Carl Lewis, and Kenyan Eliud Kipchoge successfully defended his gold medal in the men’s marathon. The Canadian women football team won their first-ever gold in Olympics history.
Ryogo Saita, 45, who was strolling outside the stadium with his 7-year-old son before the ceremony on Sunday, said they had loved watching Yuto Horigome win Japan’s first gold medal in skateboarding on television. Nonetheless, with daily coronavirus infections in Tokyo more than tripling since the Games began, Saita expressed worry. “However, people like sports as well,” he added. “I believe it was for the best that they occurred. It’s as if I’m fighting two feelings at the same time.”
