The Uganda athletics committee has finally made a team selection for the July 2021 Olympics slated to be held this year in Tokyo Japan.
This year’s Olympic games comes after the cancellation of last year’s event due to the COVID-19 pandemic that could not enable the events to take place.
This year’s several activities are to take place in Japan during the Olympic games and among some of these events include Karate, Skateboarding, sport climbing surfing, athletics and the new entrant baseball/softball that shall appear for the first time.
However, due to the delay of the Games, a number of world championships in summer sports that have been scheduled for 2021 have been postponed, as the Olympic Games competition or tournament takes pride of place on the calendar.
It should however be noted that the dates and locations of all events are subject to change, with the prevailing local conditions dictating whether they are held as scheduled.
