Welcome to popular Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a popular Wikipedia page every day.
With 410,221 views on Friday, 23 July 2021 our article of the day is 2020 Summer Olympics Parade of Nations.
During the Parade of Nations within the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics opening ceremony, which took place on 23 July 2021, athletes and officials from each participating team entered the Olympic Stadium preceded by their flag and placard bearer. Each flag bearer will have been chosen either by the team's National Olympic Committee or by the athletes themselves. For the first time, each team had the option to allow two flag bearers, one male and one female, in an effort to promote gender equality.
These Olympics were postponed from 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the number of athletes who paraded at this opening ceremony was much smaller than normal.
