2020 Tokyo Olympics Betting
For the first time ever, an Olympics will take place in an odd-numbered year. The COVID pandemic forced the 2020 Summer Olympics to be pushed back a year. However, it appears to be all systems go for the 2021 Summer Olympics in Tokyo.
The 2021 Summer Olympics are slated to begin on Friday, July 23, 2021. They will run for 16 straight days before coming to a conclusion on August 8, 2021. Tens of thousands of athletes from around the world will gather in Tokyo, Japan for this event, and we will likely see over 200 nations represented.
These Olympics will feature several new sports. Three-on-three basketball, relay race cycling, and freestyle BMX will all be making their Olympic debuts. The Tokyo Organizing Committee also added karate, skateboarding, surfing, and sport climbing for at least this Olympics.

The very first Olympics was held in Athens, Greece in 1896, as Pierre de Coubertin wanted to invoke the memory of the original Olympics in ancient Greece. They ended up being a smash hit, and Paris became the second host for the modern Olympics in 1900. France’s capital became the first city to host the Olympics twice, but we haven’t seen the Summer Olympics return to the country since 1924.
London is the only city that has played host to the Summer Olympics three times. The city hosted the 1908, 1948, and 2012 Olympic Games. Paris and Los Angeles will soon join London though as those cities will be the hosts of the next two Summer Olympics.
All-time Olympics Medal Table (Top Ten)
The United States has lapped the field in terms of production at the Summer Olympics. America is the only country with more than 1,000 gold medals, and the defunct Soviet Union is the only other nation with more than 300 gold medal wins. The US currently boasts more than 2,500 total medals, and they have garnered the most medals for six straight Summer Olympics and picked up the most gold medals in five of the last six Olympic Games.
Great Britain was a consistent contender at the early Summer Olympics, and they have been much more competitive in recent years. After grabbing just one gold medal and 15 total medals at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, this nation redoubled its efforts to put athletes on the podium. The UK won the third-most medals at the 2012 London Games and the second-most medals at the 2016 Rio Games.
Although China did not participate in the Olympics from 1956 to 1980, they have been the biggest threat to the United States at these competitions since the collapse of the Soviet Union. China has finished at least fourth in the medal count at every Summer Olympics since the 1992 Barcelona Games. They had their best performance yet at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, winning 100 medals in their home country.
