Andy Anson CEO, British Olympic Association
The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games will be remembered as a Games like no other – one of sheer human endeavour and extraordinary sporting prowess.
They were always going to be a highly complex Olympic Games to deliver and that was before the Covid-19 pandemic, which complicated further the task of delivering on all of Team GB’s ambitious targets.
At the heart of our operation was a comprehensive and world-leading performance environment that we delivered with the integral support, enthusiasm and commitment of our partners at Keio University and the cities of Kawasaki and Yokohama. The support, expertise, diligence and positivity that their teams brought to every task and challenge we faced was vital to the ultimate success of Team GB at Tokyo 2020 – we couldn’t have done it without them.
It is not just the time and effort from our partners in Tokyo that was so important but we will be forever grateful for the friendships that have been formed that will last well into the future. We hope that it is a future inspired by the memories of Tokyo 2020.
