The Organising Committee of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics has announced the competition schedule for the Paralympic Games, following its postponement to 2021.

The Paralympic Games are set to take place in the Japanese capital from 24th August – 5th September 2021 and will feature 539 events across 22 sports contested at 21 venues.

Paralympic fans will be able to enjoy watching traditional favourites like athletics and swimming events throughout; these are scheduled for all but two of the 12 days of the Games. Athletics will feature the largest number of individual events at the Games, and all athletics sessions will include finals, resulting in 167 medal events.

“The announcement of the competition schedule is always a key milestone for all Paralympic Games. With just over one year to go, Para-athletes can now see when they will be competing, and spectators can start to plan which events they either want to attend in person or view on television.” International Paralympic Committee (IPC) President Andrew Parsons said of the announcement.

“We are pleased that this schedule has been finalised so quickly following March’s postponement and that it again follows timings that are suitable for a family audience to engage with the Games,” Parsons added
