Featuring athletes, local sports figures and Tokyo 2020 Olympic hopefuls representing karate, skateboarding, softball and baseball, sport climbing and surfing, "Going Olympic: Tokyo 2020" is a journey across Japan through the personalities and newest sports to join the Olympic programme. 

From the Tokyo-trending bouldering centre and the streets of Osaka to the waves in Fukushima and the Yokohama BayStars home field, "Going Olympic: Tokyo 2020" also introduces viewers to some of Japan's deeply rooted traditions through the eyes of future stars, including teen skateboarder Kisa Nakamura and two-time world champion in karate Kiyou Shimizu, who have their sights set on Olympic gold.

Produced exclusively for the Olympic Channel by VICE Media Japan, "Going Olympic: Tokyo 2020" is the Olympic Channel's first original series filmed entirely in Japan and uses Japanese as the primary language. Subtitling is available 11 languages.
