 Japans 30 gold medal target for Olympic Games extension remains unchanged


The postponement of the Tokyo Olympic Games has led to the intensified Three Kingdoms between China, Japan and South Korea in the Tokyo Olympic Games, and a tit for tat battle will be launched in table tennis, badminton, shooting, archery, taekwondo, swimming and other events.

The Chinese delegation launched a breakthrough

As a traditional Asian sports power, the exchanges, cooperation and competition between China, Japan and South Korea in the field of sports have never been interrupted. Whether it is an intercontinental sports event such as the Asian Championships, the Asian Cup, the East Asian Games, the Asian Games, or an international competition such as the Olympic games and the world championships, the Three Kingdoms sports arena has always been the focus of attention.

In the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Games, the peoples Republic of China sent a delegation to participate in the Olympic Games for the first time after its establishment, and won 15 gold medals, which made the world stand out. Although there was a huge fluctuation in the 1988 Seoul Olympic Games, the Chinese delegation won only five gold medals; however, in the following two Olympic Games, the Chinese Legion accounted for 16 gold medals, ranking fourth in the gold medal list.

After 1992, the Chinese delegation began to make efforts to maintain the total number of gold medals in a single session at more than 20, ranking the first tier. In the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, the Chinese Legion won 48 gold medals by virtue of the hosts time, place, people and and won the gold medal for the first time.

In 2012 London Olympic Games and 2016 Rio Olympic Games, the Chinese delegation ranked second and third in the gold medal table with 38 gold and 26 gold respectively.

57% of the seats in the Tokyo Olympic Games have been allocated, and IOC has determined that although the games are postponed, the Olympic qualifications that have been generated are still valid. At present, the Chinese delegation has obtained 226 seats in 22 major events and 162 minor events, and 316 people are expected to participate in the Olympic Games.

With the suspension of the Russian delegation, Chinas Olympic delegation has become the most powerful competitor in the gold medal table. The Chinese delegation has three gold medals - weightlifting, diving and table tennis. Chinas diving team and table tennis team have won gold medals in the world championships in this Olympic cycle. The Chinese weightlifting project, which suffered setbacks in the previous two years, also reached a new height in the 2019 World Championships. At the Tokyo Olympic Games, 21 gold medals will be won in the three events, laying a solid foundation for the Chinese delegation.

In addition, Chinas Canoeing Team and rowing team have made great achievements in the world championships, winning 7 gold medals in total, among which they have the ability to compete in four or five Olympic events. In addition, the Chinese delegation also has strong strength in badminton, shooting, womens volleyball, wrestling, judo, taekwondo, boxing, track and field, swimming and other events, and it should be expected to win 30 gold medals.

Of course, the competition in the Olympic Games is fierce, and there are many unpredictable factors. For example, the Chinese shooting team has won five gold medals in the Beijing Olympic Games, and has also tried to encounter Waterloo in Rio Olympic Games. Only one gold has been recorded.

Due to the postponement of the Olympic Games for one year, the biggest problem faced by the Chinese delegation is that some gold medal athletes are too old to retire in advance or difficult to maintain their status.

It can be predicted that the Three Kingdoms between China, Japan and South Korea will have a summit confrontation on several projects. Among them, the China Japan duel has attracted more attention. The athletes of the two delegations will have fierce battles in table tennis, badminton, tennis, judo, swimming and other events.

With the postponement of the Tokyo Olympic Games to 2021, the IOC will also release a revised version of the rules for the allocation of seats for 33 major Olympic events in early April.

Japanese delegation

Home advantage

In the 2016 Rio Olympics, the Japanese delegation won 12 gold medals, a significant increase compared with the 7 in the 2012 London Olympics, which gave Japanese people hope. In the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, the Japanese delegation enjoys the advantage of the main venue. According to the practice that the number of gold medals of previous hosts will increase substantially, and in addition, Japan has added its own advantageous events such as rock climbing, karate, skateboarding, surfing, baseball and softball in this Olympic Games, which has greatly increased its gold winning strength. The Japanese Olympic Committee has also proposed the goal of 30 gold medals.

There is no reason to change this goal (30 gold medals) and the Japanese Olympic Committee will work together with all the individual organizations to achieve this goal, Yamashita, President of the Japanese Olympic Committee, said recently

Japanese sports have three major advantages: wrestling, judo and karate. The total number of gold medals in the three Olympic Games is 41, which is the main source for the Japanese delegation to win gold.

Compared with China, Japans gold rush players are younger. One years extension will undoubtedly enhance their strength. In addition to the benefits of the host country, the Japanese delegation is likely to surpass the target of 30 gold medals.

Of course, the event of direct confrontation between China and Japan is also related to the gold medal trend of both delegations. In particular, it is worth mentioning the swimming project. The Chinese and Japanese delegations completely abandoned the Korean delegation in the swimming pool war of the Asian Games, and chijiang lihuazi alone won six gold medals, known as the Asian queen of water.

At the beginning of 2019, chijiang lihuazi announced that he had leukemia. After 10 months of treatment, she announced her recovery at the end of last year and plans to return to the world swimming championships in 2021. Due to the postponement of the Tokyo Olympic Games, chijiang lihuazi, who was sorry to have missed the games, will lose and recover and will fight for the Japanese delegation, hoping to shine again.

Sun Yang, a Chinese swimmer with gold medal winning ability, was almost out of the way for the Tokyo Olympic Games. The two delegations of China and Japan will fall behind each other in swimming events.

The South Korean delegation often makes amazing moves

South Korea, with a total population of 51.63 million, is a powerful sports country, with many advantageous projects and wide coverage. It overlaps with the Chinese delegation in shooting, archery, taekwondo, judo and other projects, and its strength cannot be underestimated.

In the last three Olympic Games, the South Korean delegation has won 13 gold medals, 13 gold medals and 9 gold medals, which are the backbone of the second group in the gold medal table.

The South Korean Olympic Committee said that as of March 10, South Korea had won 157 Olympic Games places, including baseball, mens football, womens volleyball, and is expected to win another 60.

At the Tokyo Olympic Games, South Koreas goal is double ten, that is, 10 gold medals and top 10 gold medals. This goal is slightly higher than that of Rio Olympic Games, but lower than that of Beijing Olympic Games and London Olympic Games.

Tokyo Olympic Games set up 33 major events and 339 gold medals, 33 more than Rio Olympic Games. The South Korean baseball team won the gold medal at the Beijing Olympic Games, and they certainly hope to defend their title at the Tokyo Olympic Games many years later.

In order to achieve the goal, South Korea has raised 4.5 billion won (about 25.95 million yuan), hoping that there will be brave men under heavy awards.

It is worth mentioning that the Korean and Japanese teams will fight fiercely in the mens football event of Tokyo Olympic Games, which is a national war concerning the honor of both sides. The goal of the Japan Football Association is to win the gold medal of mens football in the Olympic Games. However, in the U-23 Asian championship, the Korean Olympic team won the title, while the Japanese Olympic team was eliminated in the group match. This also allowed the South Korean delegation to see the hope of beating Japan at the Tokyo Olympic Games.

Kim xuefan, coach of the South Korean National Olympic team, said their goal at the Tokyo Olympics was to break through the best result of the South Korean football team in winning the bronze medal at the 2012 London Olympics, at least ranking higher than that of Japan.

Of course, there is still a thorny problem, that is, due to the postponement of the Tokyo Olympic Games for one year, U-23 school-age players have been over aged at the beginning of next year, which requires IOC and FIFA to readjust the rules.
