The event took place two days before the opening ceremony of the Games, which was delayed by an epidemic, in a sport returning to sports for the first time since 2008.

The game took place without spectators under the auspices of the Corona virus, which will surround the Olympics, which is facing widespread public opposition in Japan, where infections are on the rise.
