2020 Summer Olympics Parade of Nations

Parade of Nations at the 2020 Olympics

Encyclopedia from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

During the Parade of Nations within the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics opening ceremony, which took place on 23 July 2021, athletes and officials from each participating team entered the Olympic Stadium preceded by their flag and placard bearer. Each flag bearer will have been chosen either by the team's National Olympic Committee or by the athletes themselves. For the first time, each team had the option to allow two flag bearers, one male and one female, in an effort to promote gender equality.[1] These Olympics were postponed from 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the number of athletes who paraded at this opening ceremony was much smaller than normal.

Parade order

Athletes entered the Olympic Stadium in an order dictated by the Olympic tradition. As the originator of the Olympics, the Greek team entered first. Other teams then entered, following the Gojūon order of Japanese Kana, based on the names of countries in Japanese,[2][3] — the first time this has happened as previous Olympics held in Japan have used the English language. Following tradition, the delegation from the host nation Japan entered last. The names of the teams were announced in French, followed by English and Japanese, the official languages of the Olympic movement and the host nation, in accordance with traditional and International Olympic Committee (IOC) guidelines.

The Republic of North Macedonia had previously competed under the provisional name of Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, because of the disputed status of its official name. It was officially renamed to North Macedonia in February 2019 and the Olympic Committee of North Macedonia (NMOC) was officially adopted in February 2020. It was North Macedonia's first appearance at the Summer Olympics under its new name.[4]

The IOC Refugee Olympic Team, composed of refugees from several countries, was the second team to enter,[5] after Greece. For the first time ever in the opening ceremony, the teams from the countries that will host the next two Olympic Games in 2024 and 2028, France and the United States respectively, marched before the team of the host nation Japan, instead of entering one-hundred-fifty-third (between Brazil and Bulgaria) and seventh (between Afghanistan and the United Arab Emirates) respectively, as they ordinarily would according to the Gojūon, the Japanese script order.[5] Australia, who were announced as the host of the 2032 Games the day before the ceremony, did not march with France and the United States but instead in their usual place, in thirty-sixth.

Sanctions were imposed against Russia by the World Anti-Doping Agency due to state-sanctioned doping, which disallowed Russia from using its name, flag, and anthem in the Olympics. On 19 February 2021, it was announced that Russia would compete under the acronym, "ROC" after the name of the Russian Olympic Committee although the name of the committee itself in full could not be used to refer to the delegation, while only the flag of the Russian Olympic Committee would be displayed.[6]

On 6 April 2021, North Korea announced it would not participate in the 2020 Summer Olympics due to COVID-19 concerns. This will mark North Korea's first absence in the Summer Olympics since 1988. On 21 July 2021, Guinea announced it would not participate in the 2020 Summer Olympics, officially citing COVID-19 concerns. However, Guinea reversed this decision the following day.[7][8]

Teams and flagbearers

On 4 March 2020, the IOC announced that each team can have the option to allow two flag bearers, one male and one female, in an effort to promote gender equality.[9]

Below is a list of parading teams and their announced flag bearer(s), in the same order as the parade. This is sortable by team name, flag bearer's name, and flag bearer's sport. Unlike previous editions, the teams entered the Olympic Stadium ordered by theirs names in Japanese, following the Gojūon order with six exceptions (Greece, Refugee Olympic Team, Russian Olympic Committee, USA, France, and Japan).

Notes
  1. ^ Short name Équipe olympique des réfugiés/Refugee Olympic Team/難民選手団 on the panels and as announced.
  2. ^ ROC was announced with its full name Comité olympique russe/Russian Olympic Committee/ロシアオリンピック委員会
  3. ^ ROC was sorted based on its French abbreviation COR.
  4. ^ Chinese Taipei was sorted based on the Japanese script order for the name, Taiwan, instead of Chinese Taipei, despite the fact that sorting by the name Chinese Taipei will not in any case result in the conflicting teams of China and Chinese Taipei marching in one right after another, which was a concern in many previous Olympic ceremonies based on the script order of other languages.
  5. ^ replaced Hamish Bond
  6. ^ EJ Obiena was originally chosen, but he was replaced by men's middleweight boxer Eumir Marcial because of a new protocol that required flagbearers to be in Tokyo 48 hours before the opening ceremony. Obiena is scheduled to arrive on 23 July, the exact day of the opening ceremony.[98][99]
  7. ^ Khairul Anuar Mohamad was originally chosen, but requested to be replaced to focus for the archery competition a day after the ceremony.[120]
  8. ^ Simona Halep was originally chosen, but had to withdraw due to injury.[132]
  9. ^ Mădălina Bereș was chosen to replace Halep, but passed the opportunity to her partner in the doubles.

Music

Musical pieces for the Parade of Nations were selected from several video games soundtracks created in Japan. These selections included themes from the series of Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy, Tales of, Monster Hunter, Kingdom Hearts, Sonic the Hedgehog, SaGa, Pro Evolution Soccer, Ace Combat, Gradius, Nier and Soulcalibur, as well as from the game Chrono Trigger.[139][140]
