Rowing, swimming, cycling and even surfing have already got underway at Tokyo 2020 as the countdown to the athletics edges closer.
The athletics events are among the most popular for Olympics fans but sadly the athletes performing at the National Stadium in Tokyo will have no spectators in attendance due to the coronavirus restrictions.
However, whether it's someone hopping, skipping and jumping into the sand pit in the triple jump or the likes of Eliud Kipchoge going for world records in the marathon, there's excitement for everyone.
