Once again, the Olympic Torch will be ignited in Greece before making its way to Tokyo for the 2020 Summer Games.
In keeping with tradition, the torch will be lit in a ceremony at Olympia, Greece, on March 12th. Former Japanese gold medalist Mizuki Noguchi will serve as the first torchbearer.
From there, the torch will make its way around Greece for eight days before being flown to Japan. The torch will then travel by foot for 121 days, finally arriving in Tokyo on July 24th as part of the Opening Ceremony.
