Tokyo Olympics 2020

Finally, Tokyo Olympics 2020 come to an end this Sunday, some will be celebrating the Olympics as a winner while losers will be looking at where they can improve their sport in the next three years’ time.

The Olympics have always been an opportunity for nations to showcase their talent on the grandest of stages.

Historically, the prestige of the platform has been an opportunity for governments to promote a kind of “soft power” of culture and influence, instead of the hard power of wealth and military might.
