It may be a little later than planned, but this year, the Land of the Rising Sun will finally become Omega’s own land of Recording Dreams. For the 29th time in history, the brand will fulfil its role as the Official Timekeeper of the Olympic Games, bringing almost 90 years of experience to Tokyo 2020.
339 events in 33 sports will be competed in Japan, and Omega will be measuring every second of action. This includes brand new sports for the Olympic Games, including karate, sport climbing, surfing baseball/softball, and skateboarding, giving the Swiss watchmaker more competitions to record than ever before.
Of course, the greatest focus will be on the determined athletes aiming for gold. Each of them has dedicated years, months and hours to reach this moment. Their dreams depend on those final results, making mega’s precision and equipment a vital part of every event.
Thankfully, Omega has experience! In fact, the brand has been at the Olympic Games for nearly every edition since 1932. During those years, the brand has evolved, developed and implemented many of the most famous timekeeping technologies in sport.
Now, at Tokyo 2020, Omega’s expertise will reach a new peak. As well as providing 400 tonnes of its most trusted and state-of-the-art equipment, the brand will also continue a truly exciting era of real-time data measurement. You are about to witness the Olympic Games in a brand new way!
