    Bolt, the world record holder over 100 and 200 metres, made the Olympics his stage when he won both events in Beijing in 2008, in London in 2012, and in Rio in 2016.

    Bolt will be joined by Japanese performing arts group Kodo.

    Also part of the inauguration will be the Tohoku Kizuna festival.

    The New National Stadium will host the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2020 Olympics, as well as athletics and football tournaments at throughout. It will also host the Paralympics.

    The first official sports event at the stadium will be the Japanese emperor’s cup on January 1, 2020.
