Where to bet on the games in Tokyo 2020? Sports betting for the 2021 Olympics
The Tokyo Olympics were postponed to 2021. Everything is caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The closer to this big event, the more betting offers will appear. Where to bet on the games in Tokyo? Where can I find bets for the 2021 Summer Games? Who to bet on at the Games?
The Tokyo Olympics were originally scheduled to take place in 2020, as tradition indicates. This big event usually takes place every four years. This time, however, it had to be a bit different, although the decision makers did what they could until the very end. Due to the global situation, the Olympic Games were postponed to 2021. In the end, it was decided that they would start on July 23 and last until August 8.
Organizing such a huge event will be extremely difficult. Suffice it to say that even the mood in Japan is not very promising. Many business companies are in favor of postponing the Olympic Games, and fans are not convinced of the success of this event. The organizers ensure that everything will be carried out in compliance with sanitary standards and that each competitor will be as protected as possible.
The closer to the Olympics, the more fans will be interested. In turn, the interest will translate into the willingness to enter into bookmakers. Who to bet on at the Games?

It will also be possible to predict how many pucks the Polish national team will bring from the Japanese capital. Usually the media indicate our medal chances and on this basis we can rethink our bets. Certainly, there will be plenty of extensive analyzes, especially since for some of our representatives these may be the last games in their careers. How will the different date of the competition affect their form?
Bets for the 2021 Summer Games
At the last three Olympic Games, in 2008 in Beijing, in 2012 in London and in 2016 in Rio de Janeiro, Polish representatives finished their struggle with 11 medals. Will they be able to improve this result in Tokyo? If we look at the tendency to get gold discs, it is decreasing. At the aforementioned games, we won four, three and two of the most valuable trophies. They managed to win the most in 1964 in ... Tokyo and in 1996 in Atlanta - seven each. Sports betting for the 2021 Olympics will surely be of great interest.
We will certainly also receive bets on medals of individual Polish representatives. Team sports representatives should also be available. Volleyball players, i.e. world champions twice in a row, have a great appetite for Olympic gold. Poles stood on the podium only once. In 1976 in Montreal they won the gold medal. Will they manage to break a bad streak? The potential of Vital Heynen's team is huge and millions of Poles will certainly support the Polish team on their way to their final success.
Sports betting for the 2021 Olympics
Some representatives of the betting scene were able to prepare quite an important bet. The point is, of course, whether… the Olympic Games will take place. Together with the next epidemic or government forecasts, we can expect the resumption of such proposals. Not everyone is convinced that this event should take place. The plans are different.
Only in February, qualifying tournaments for handball players and boxers were canceled. The head of the Organizing Committee, Yoshiro Mori, resigned from his position. In addition, more than half of Japanese companies want the Tokyo Olympic Games to be canceled or postponed. This is according to a study by Tokyo Shoko Research. The reluctance to organize the Games in comparison with the previous measurements even increased.
So we can be sure that bets for the 2021 Summer Olympics, and more specifically whether the event will take place, will still appear at selected bookmakers. Who to bet on? You should follow the offers of individual entities.
History of the Olympic Games
The first summer games were held in 1896 in Athens. Then we saw 14 teams, which consisted of 241 players. We had 43 competitions then. So it is worth paying attention to what path the sport has taken over the years. At the previous Olympics, there were as many as 207 teams, over 11,000 athletes who competed in 306 events! These were record games in each of the above-mentioned categories.
We had to wait for the first competitor under the Polish flag until 1924 and the Olympic Games in Paris. The Polish team immediately marked their presence with the first medals. The first to win them were track cyclists in a four-kilometer race. Józef Lange, Jan Łazarski, Tomasz Stankiewicz and Franciszek Szymczek reached for silver. At the same Games, Adam Królikiewicz won a bronze medal in horse riding (show jumping).
At the 2021 Summer Olympics, we will see the struggles of, among others in baseball and softball, which were removed from the program after the Beijing Olympics. Also added are competitions in such disciplines as karate, skateboarding, surfing, sport climbing and street basketball (three out of three).
During the Olympic Games in Tokyo we will see 339 competitions. The opening ceremony will take place on July 23, but the day and two days earlier we will see the first matches in football and softball tournaments.
