Tokyo 2020 Olympics organizers on Friday unveiled a shortlist of four replacement logos after the original design was scrapped last September amid accusations of plagiarism.

The Tokyo 2020 Logo Selection Committee chose the four candidates from almost 15,000 entries in a competition open to any resident of Japan over the age of 18.

"This time, we wanted as many people as possible to participate, and we received entries from people of all different ages, nationalities and occupations," said Logo Selection Committee Chairman Ryohei Miyata.
