Here Are The Malaysian Athletes Who Will Represent Our Country For The Tokyo Olympics

After being delayed for a year, the Tokyo Olympics will finally take place this year from 23 July to 8 August! Despite being postponed to 2021, the upcoming games will still be referred to as “Tokyo 2020” on all the medals for marketing purposes. Don’t be mistaken, Japan’s borders still remain closed to foreigners, only athletes for the Tokyo Olympics are allowed to enter the country.

While we aren’t able to support our Malaysian athletes at the location itself, you can always watch the games live and cheer for our local athletes! A total of 30 Malaysian athletes qualified for the Tokyo Olympics so far and they will be competing in 10 different sports categories:
