TOKYO OLYMPICS 2021: THE WINNERS 🎖

Tokyo olympics 2021: The winners and the best moments.

From July 23 to August 8, the Olympic Games were held in Tokyo, and although they should have been held last year, due to the pandemic produced by Covid-19, they were held to delay until 2021.

After a year of waiting, the Olympic Games have arrived and with them have arrived the winners, the anecdotes, and the most important sporting event in recent times. For all those people who could not follow the Olympics or all those others who want to review some of the best moments, we will comment below on the winners and the best moments. 

What are the Olympic Games?

Before commenting on whom the winners were, we have to talk about what the Olympic Games really are. As we have said before, the Olympics are considered to be one of the biggest sporting events taking place today, since it is characterized by bringing together athletes from different parts of the world and from all existing sports.

There are two types of Olympic Games, the Summer, and the Winter Games, and in today’s article, as expected, we will discuss everything you need to know about the Tokyo 2021 Summer Olympic Games? 

Who have been the winners of the Tokyo Olympics?

Now that we really know what the Olympic Games are, we can only find out who the winners of the Tokyo 2021 Olympics were. Unsurprisingly, the United States was the country that won the most medals. Specifically, he got a total of 113 medals, 39 of which were gold. Surely it became the top winner as his two rivals only got 88 from China and 58 from Japan. Although the total of medals from other countries was higher, these were the 3 countries that achieved the most gold medals.

Although the United States finished as the top winner, we cannot forget that the battle for first place was very close with China until the last minute. The United States managed to surpass the 38 gold medals of China after having a spectacular Sunday. 

Best moments of the Tokyo Olympics

In addition to medals and awards, the Olympic Games left some great anecdotes to remember and for this reason, to end this article we are going to comment on some of the best moments of the 2021 Tokyo Olympics. 

The Olympic Games of the youngest

If the Olympic Games have stood out for something, it is because of the participation of very young athletes. Momiji Nishiya, at just 13 years old, managed to become one of the youngest gold medalists in the history of the Olympic Games.

In addition to her, Rayssa Leal, also 13 years old, managed to win the silver medal and Funa Nakayama, 16 years old, got the bronze. 

Simone Biles and the importance of mental health

We could say that Simone Biles unwittingly gave a great lesson to everyone and is that after receiving praise from all the people, she announced that she was not able to participate in the team final since she had to stop and focus on mental health.

Sharing a gold medal

Another of the great surprises of these last Olympics was the Olympic high jump final where Mutaz Essa Barshim from Qatar and Gianmarco Tamberi from Italy had to share the gold since, after a long competition, both were tied. Specifically, managed to register a jump of 2.37 meters, and although they had the opportunity to break the tie, both athletes reached an agreement to share a gold medal.

Tom Daley and his hidden activity

If before we talked about Simone Biles and her message on mental health, we cannot leave to talk about Tom Daley and his hidden activity. Thanks to this, he has become one of the athletes who have given the best moments during the Olympic Games, and is that while other athletes competed, the Brit was knitting a jumper for his French bulldog and even made a jacket with the Olympics symbol on it.

Tom Daley said that knitting has become a relaxing activity for him and therefore, before any competition, he appeared knitting. If you don’t want to miss any of his creations, don’t hesitate to follow him on his account @madewithlovebytomdaley

The Olympics of sportsmanship

Finally, we want to highlight that these were the Olympics of sportsmanship and in many of the competitions, we could see how the athletes rejoiced and celebrated their triumph with their rivals. Specifically, we will all remember the moment when Tatjana Schoenmaker came first and all her teammates joined her to celebrate that she had won. As Biles herself stated, “we have to protect our minds and our bodies. And not just go out and do what the world wants us to do. ” Through her words and courageous statements, Simone Biles was able to highlight the importance of mental health in all areas.

“I think there should be much more talk about mental health (…) at the end of the day, we are not just entertainment, we are human, and there are things behind that, in addition to sports, with which we juggle”.
