The last word anyone would use to describe the Tokyo Olympic Games would be “normal.” But it certainly was memorable. After a year delay and highly scrutinized lead up to competition, the Games of the 32nd Olympiad were successfully completed in Tokyo. Equestrian competition took place at the Baji Koen Equestrian Park and the Sea Coast Cross Country Course venues, and while not a single spectator was allowed in, the athletes put on a show that had all the makings of a broadway spectacle—even the music.
From history-making women to barefoot champions, a long-awaited gold and a “spa morning,” enjoy my top 10 moments from the Olympic Games in Tokyo.
