As we mark one year to go until the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games in 2021, fans can learn all about the summer Olympic Sports through our ‘Spotlight on Sports’ series.

From Friday 24 July to Sunday 9 August – the original Tokyo 2020 dates – we will be covering different sports each day, offering you a rich insight into the origins of each sport, recognising Aussie milestones, and featuring some influential people who contributed towards the sport’s history.

From Aussie superstars and Olympic milestones to the trailblazing new sports like surfing, skateboarding and sport climbing making their Olympic debut in Tokyo, get to know the intricacies of each sport through written content, athlete videos and infographics.
