Tokyo Olympics

Games Vision Three Core Concepts Achieving Personal Best Through flawless preparation and execution, the Tokyo 2020 Games aim to deliver an event where every athlete can realise their best performance and achieve their personal best. The world's best technologies will be adopted in developing competition venues and in operating the Games. All Japanese citizens, including Olympic and Paralympic volunteers, will employ their utmost resourcefulness as hosts to welcome visitors from around the world with the best Japanese omotenashi, or hospitality. Unity in Diversity Accepting and respecting differences in race, colour, gender, sexual orientation, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth, level of ability or other status allows peace to be maintained and society to continue to develop and flourish. The Tokyo 2020 Games will foster a welcoming environment and raise awareness of unity in diversity among citizens of the world. Connecting to Tomorrow The Tokyo 1964 Games completely transformed Japan, enhanced Japanese people's awareness of the outside world and developed the rapid growth of Japan's economy. The 2020 Games will enable Japan, now a mature economy, to promote future changes throughout the world, and leave a positive legacy for future generations. Games Operations and Various Actions Based on the Games Vision Ensure that every aspect of Games delivery incorporates the relevant principles laid out in the Games Vision, including in the development of venues and infrastructure and the staging of the Opening and Closing Ceremonies. The Tokyo 2020 Games will encompass a wide range of areas, with a far-reaching time and regional span. We will establish a cross-sectional framework from the initial phase to ensure the active engagement of the Government of Japan, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, the JOC, the JPC, the business community, and other relevant parties. We will also establish an "Action & Legacy Plan" in 2016. Incorporate the recommendations adopted in the Olympic Agenda 2020 into the delivery of the Games; the Tokyo 2020 Games will contribute to the beginning of the Olympic reforms included in the Agenda 2020.

Super Sunday Session Donie + Alan

You need to repeat this entry several times because after you leave the nice warm pool, the next time you practice this may be for real. It may be unexpected, cold, and a little scary, so take time to get it right now. A quick caution: if you fall in, you may be tempted to abandon your kayak and swim to shore. More than 99.9% of the time, this is a really bad idea. The shore is always farther away than it looks from water level and, most importantly, you’ve just abandoned your biggest lifejacket. That’s right! The kayak will float under virtually any conditions. You may not. Hang on to your kayak, even if you can’t get back in. The same goes for any watercraft: sailboat, windsurfer, rowing shell—always stick with it, unless it’s actually on fire, which is somewhat unlikely for a non-engine powered boat. Aside from the benefits of being a giant buoyancy bag, sticking with your craft allows you and it to be seen much more easily than if you are just a small head bobbing in the water. Also, you MUST BEWARE OF COLD WATER SHOCK. Watch this short film now; IT MAY SAVE YOUR LIFE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sf3O1CcloN0
