A test event is a dress rehearsal to confirm and improve the competition and Games operation capabilities in order to ensure the successful operation during the Olympic and Paralympic Games. Test events have usually been held prior to past Games and will also be carried out in preparation for the Tokyo 2020 Games. Test events will be organised by the International Federations and the National Federations as well as by the Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee.

“READY STEADY TOKYO”

“READY STEADY TOKYO” is the official brand name and logo for the test events Tokyo 2020 will be organising.

The brand name—“READY STEADY TOKYO”—aims to express the excitement that continues to build as the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020 edge closer. It derives from the “ready, steady, go!” used to start a race, with “STEADY” additionally signifying Tokyo 2020 is keeping to its charted course as it heads towards its goal of hosting an incredible Games. The overall message of the brand name is “We are ready for Tokyo 2020. Let’s stay focused as we move forward to a successful Games.”

The design of the new logo, expressed using brush strokes that echo Japanese calligraphy, is inspired by the passion and powerful movements of athletes moving through the water and kicking up earth as they compete.
