With around 700 days to go to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, the competition schedule by session has been approved and released by the International Olympic Committee on July 18th.
In 2020, from July 24th to August 9th, the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games will be home to a record 33 sports and 339 events.
On July 25th — the day following the opening ceremony — a total of 21 sports will be featured in an action-packed competition schedule: shooting sport, which is going to deliver the first of its 15 gold medals, is one of those. The rest of the shooting sport events will stretch out until August 3rd, and during this period at least one final event will take place on each day, except for July 29th and August 2nd. Rifle and Pistol disciplines will generate 10 gold medals in total, while shotgun events will contribute with 5 more golds.
All the shooting sport events will be held at the Asaka Shooting Range, the same venue that hosted shooting sport events at the 1964 Olympic Games, which is going to be renovated for the upcoming Games.
August 1st will be the Super Saturday of the Olympic Games, with a huge number of medal events scheduled to be held on that day. Among them, the first-ever Trap Mixed Team final, along with other events appearing for the first time at the Olympics.
The Olympic competition schedule by session is available here.
