Legend,

“Arigato” Tokyo 2020!

The Tokyo Olympics are over.

The Japanese capital said goodbye to 17 days of pure emotion on August 8 at a closing ceremony that puts the finishing touches to a postponed Olympics that has been called “strange” in history.

The Games were held without spectators and participating athletes were not allowed to leave the Olympic Village.

To close this chapter of Olympic history, fireworks lit up Tokyo’s Olympic Stadium on Sunday.
