After one year delay due to the global pandemic, finally Tokyo 2020 Olympic is going to begin. Being officially recognized by International Olympic Committee to NOC Nepal in 1963, the first participation of Nepal in Olympic was Tokyo Olympic held in 1964 . Therefore, the Tokyo 2020 Olympic is very significant for Nepal.
On behalf of Nepal Olympic Committee and myself, I wish to express my best wishes to Nepalese athletes to be a part of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. I am very confident that our athletes will perform their best and make us proud in the International arena.
I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to Tokyo 2020 Organizing Committee, International Olympic Committee (IOC), Government of Japan, People of Japan and all the volunteers & Medical personnel for their great effort to hold a successful games. I believe that the games will be safe and secure for all the participants as well as unforgettable to them.
Last but not least, I am very grateful to the Youth & Sports Ministry and National Sports Council for their close cooperation and assistance rendered to us in regarding the participation in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
