The International Olympic Committee on Friday approved the Tokyo 2020 Olympic event program in a move that will increase female participation while reducing the total number of competitors.

The decision by the IOC’s executive board will see 15 more events than were competed in last year at the Rio de Janeiro Summer Games, while reducing the total number of athletes by 285. Judo will add a mixed team event, while mixed doubles will be added to the table tennis tournament.
