We are pleased to announce our delegation for the Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo this July! Originally planned for 2020, the Tokyo Summer Olympic Games have been delayed for a year due to the pandemic. This has been a huge complication in the usually challenging and stressful process of training and qualifying for our athletes, and athletes all over the world. We are incredibly proud of these athletes' hard work during this unusually difficult year.
