The summer festival of Olympian and Paralympian Online experiences will start next week and Osaka and Mirza will partake in it as leads.
Naomi Osaka was supposed to play at the Tokyo Olympics this year representing Japan in what should have been a monumental moment in her career. Sadly the Olympics have been postponed to next year but Osaka will still headline one sort of Olympic experience. She will be part of the Summer Festival of Olympian and Paralympian online experiences.
Its is a curated program of activities hosted by athletes and presented by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), and Worldwide Olympic Partner Airbnb from 24 July – the date the Games would have begun in Tokyo.
Joining her in that endeavor was another tennis legend Sania Mirza who was also set to participate at the Olympics trying to better her own results from previous years. On the event IOC president Thomas Bach said:
“The Olympic Games bring the whole world together and, whilst we will all have to wait one more year to celebrate in Tokyo, the Olympic flame continues to be the light at the end of the dark tunnel humankind is currently going through.”
