With two weeks remaining until the start of the Tokyo Olympics, the Japanese Olympic Committee unveiled its 1,058-member delegation on Tuesday evening in a send-off ceremony more subdued than usual as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

The event was attended in person by JOC President Yasuhiro Yamashita, delegation head Tsuyoshi Fukui, Team Japan captain Ryota Yamagata, flag-bearer Yui Susaki and a handful of other athletes, with remaining participants joining virtually.
