A Brief History About the Olympics and Japan

The modern Olympics began in 1896 in Athens, Greece.

The United States has hosted more Olympics than any other country: four Summer Games (1904, 1932, 1984, 1996) and four Winter Games (1932, 1960, 1980, 2002).

Japan has hosted four Olympics, tied for third with Italy: two Summer Games (1964 and 2020 held this year) and two Winter Games (1972 and 1998).

During these Olympics, Japan is expected to host 11,238+ athletes from 206 countries. The official Games motto: United by Emotion.

Tokyo is the largest metropolitan area in the world with a population of38.14 million in 2016. Japan is ranked 11th with a 2021 population of 124.7 million (see below).

The next three Summer Games are set to be held in 2024 in Paris, 2028 in Los Angeles and 2032 in Brisbane, Australia.

India, the second most populous country in the world, has never hosted the Olympics. Neither has any country on the continent of Africa.
