I was reading the official document submitted last fall by the Tokyo Governor's office which represented Tokyo's winning bid for the 2020 Olympics, the other day, and wondered what the penalty, if any, was for false advertising.

The Tokyo submission, under former governor Naoki Inose, stipulated that the "ideal dates" to hold the 16-day competition period were from Saturday, July 24, when the Opening Ceremony would take place, to Sunday, Aug. 9, when the Closing Ceremony would be held, and followed with a jaw-dropping description of the summer Tokyo weather during the period:

"With many days of mild and sunny weather, this period provides an ideal climate for athletes to perform at their best."
