Three-time Olympic gold medalists Tadahiro Nomura and Saori Yoshida will deliver the 2020 Olympic flame from Greece and unveil it in Japan at a ceremony in March, the organizing committee of the Tokyo Games said Friday.

Nomura, a former judoka who captured his first of three straight gold medals at the 1996 Atlanta Games , and Yoshida, who won 13 consecutive wrestling world titles, will arrive at the Japanese Air Self-Defense Force's Matsushima base in Miyagi Prefecture on March 20 before unveiling the flame at a ceremony.

Children from the prefecture will also welcome the flame at the ceremony, while the two former athletes and a representative of the organizing committee will carry the lantern containing the flame onto the stage.
