Polanik equipment will be present on the most important sports competition.
On the list of products that we delivered to Japan's capital city there are hammers, shots and discuses meant for both men and women events.
Our equipment has been regularly used during Olympic Games since year 2000 (2016 Rio de Janeiro, 2012 London, 2008 Beijing, 2004 Athens, 2000 Sydney) and has helped contestants in winning Olympic medals :) How will it go this time?
The main arena of athletic events is going to be the new National Stadium in Japan, which lays in Shinjuku district. Opening and closing ceremonies will be held there, as well as athletic competitions, soccer and rugby matches. It can hold 80 thousand people, but the organizing committee decided that because of coronavirus pandemic situation, this year's Olympic Games will be held without spectators. Some competitions will be held in places such as: Fukushima, Yokohama, at the foot of Fuji mountain and by Sapporo. Olympic competition will be held on 43 different facilities.
