Enjoy watching the full Opening Ceremony of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games from July 23rd, 2021! We bring you all the moments, from when Naomi Osaka of Team Japan lit the Olympic cauldron with the Olympic torch to the fireworks going off.

The Tokyo Games were an unprecedented demonstration of unity and solidarity as the world came together for the first time following the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic for an Olympic Games focused on the pure essentials: a celebration of athletes and sport.

This sense of solidarity was critical to the success of the Tokyo 2020 Games following their historic one-year postponement, especially in the establishment of the Tokyo 2020 Playbooks—guidelines for safe and secure participation and operations. The Playbooks set a new standard for large-scale sporting events and ensured that everyone from athletes to the media would be able to safely take part in the Games.
