Widely considered to be the most wholesome showcase of the human spirit, the Games start in less than 10 days while adhering to all the necessary COVID-19 protocols. The world’s biggest sporting spectacle promises to be as grand as ever, with Olympians from multiple disciplines gearing up to do their best in Tokyo.
Sportskeeda, a multi-sport platform that recently claimed the No. 2 spot on the Comscore sports website rankings in India, with a rich track record of Olympics coverage and its work during Rio 2016 even being recognized by then Sports Minister Ajay Maken, is poised to bring users all the major action from the Olympics, yet again.

The experts’ panel at Sportskeeda will be composed of former Olympics athletes and sporting legends like Anju Bobby George, Srikanth Kidambi, Abhinav Bindra, Vijender Singh, and Somdev Devvarman, along with several seasoned journalists.
