Arrival in Tokyo - the unprecedented Games - Nick Hope, Olympic Sports Reporter

Published on: 14th July, 2021

Nick Hope will be reporting on the Olympics for BBC Sport. He's one of the most knowledgable Olympic reporters around and definitely worth a follow at the Games on @NickHopeTV

Nick talks about arrival in Japan and the warm welcome at the airport. He discusses the various Covid measures in place. And then there's the climate with the end of the rainy season being marked by some heavy downpours.

It's a great insight from one of the first reporters on the ground in Japan.

Thanks for listening!

About the Podcast

Destination Tokyo
Olympic and Paralympic stories in the run up to the Tokyo Games.
I’ve covered 5 Olympic and 5 Paralympic Games at home and abroad. Tokyo 2020 was to have been numbers 6. So how are the athletes preparing during Covid times. And what are they learning in the run up to the Games. The Podcast lasts around 10 mins and comes out daily, Monday to Friday. I’m also using it to raise money for Maggie’s Cancer Centres to thank them for the help they’ve given my wife and family during her bowel cancer journey.
