 The IOC takes Action for Women

On some occasions, we have criticized the International Olympic Committee for the inclusion of tests or sports with a clear interest to favor some geographic zones or nations. However, this occasion for the upcoming competition in Tokyo 2020.
In addition, the women´s participation is also strengthened by including related and interesting which is something that it is watched as a really positive detail that is happily accepted.

Since a year ago, it seems proper to us the interest shown by the organizers about the inclusion of other sports such as baseball, Softball and Karate. It is also excellent that the COI has included the 3/3 basketball into the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Game. Moreover, it was known the increase of up to 15 tests of the Olympic Calendar, especially in the female sector.

Other kind of activities do not seems proper ones for that Olympic competition, except perhaps the artistic ones practiced by some sectors of the population in some nations in spite of they have not a world connotation.

In spite of the announced increase this June 9th for the Olympic Games to be held in Tokyo city in 2020, this competition will have a decrease of up to 285 participants in comparison with the previous one held in Rio de Janeiro 2016 that had a higher participation in the history of these events.
