Just one day after the arrival of the Olympic flag in the Japanese capital, the Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee today paid tribute to the Paralympic Movement by marking the four-year countdown to the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games. To celebrate the occasion, public events were held at the Keyaki No Mori School in Fuchu City in the west of Tokyo and at the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Plaza. These events showcased Tokyo 2020's pledge to celebrate Unity in Diversity - one of three core concepts underpinning preparations for the Tokyo Games - by bringing children together and helping them understand the many ways people with an impairment overcome their challenges. They also helped raise awareness of Paralympic sport as a high-performance activity.
