An Olympic Games not everyone was sure would get off the ground reached its endpoint at National Stadium on Sunday night, as many of this year’s Olympians gathered for the closing ceremony of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Tokyo officially handed the games off to Paris, host of the 2024 Olympics. Tokyo Gov. Yuriko Koike passed the Olympic flag to International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach, who waved it from side to side before handing it off to Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo.
