The International Olympic Committee was desperate just to make these Games happen after all the upheaval of the pandemic, but picking a month that suits the weather makes so much sense.
Tokyo is hot in the summer. That’s why back in the 1964 Olympics they shifted events into October and the athletes enjoyed pretty much perfect temperatures.
The average was about 20C (68F). The warmest day was 23.3C (73.9F). Ideal for almost everyone.
These Games have been different in so many ways and are on track to be one of the hottest ever.
