The 32nd Summer Olympics is going to be formally inaugurated today. The Olympics will be inaugurated at 4:45 Nepal time amidst a special program to be organised in Tokyo, the capital of Japan.

Though the Olympics is going to be formally inaugurated today, some matches have already been organised from Wednesday.

Athletes, coaches, and sports officials have already reached Tokyo to participate in the Olympics. Similarly, a 23-member Nepali team, including five athletes and four coaches, has already reached Tokyo.

Swimmers Gaurika Singh and Alex Shah will carry the national flag in the march-past during the inaugural event. Though the Tokyo Olympics was scheduled to be held in 2020, it was delayed by a year due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Meanwhile, the events will be held without spectators.
