The first competition kicked off on July 21 at the Tokyo Olympics. So, at the stadium in the city of Fukushima, a softball competition was held between the women’s teams of Australia and Japan.
Fukushima was not chosen by chance for the start of the competition, this choice symbolizes the recovery of the region after the 2011 disaster.
Note that one hundred of these competitions were held even before the official opening of the Games, which will be held on July 23.
By the way, for the first time since 1996, the program of the Olympics was not opened by football.
