WHAT CAN WE EXPECT IN TOKYO?

Japanese men, who made their last Olympic appearance at the Mexico City Games in 1968, have qualified as hosts this time.

GOOD THAT

The games will usually be played in the morning and evening, reportedly due to concerns about the impact of Tokyo’s sweltering summer heat on players, as well as permission for planes to use a flight path over Tokyo to Haneda airport, which about 5 km away. from the hockey venue.
