6 new and returning sports for the 2020 Summer Olympics


If you’ve been experiencing withdrawals since the Women’s World Cup ended last month, we’ve got some good news: The 2020 Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo are less than a year away. Even more reason to be excited is that there will be six brand new sports coming to the 2020 Olympics, and two returning favorites to watch.

While gymnastics, swimming and track and field usually steal the show, there are even more events to watch in 2020. Get excited: Here’s what’s on tap.

I’m a complete Olympics junkie so the more sports, the better. New events are Karate, Skateboarding, Sport Climbing, and Surfing.
