Spectacular Closing Ceremony Welcomes Tokyo. It was an amazing show saluting all the athletes for their outstanding performances.
For almost three hours the crowd watched as the Maracana was turned into a street carnival celebrating Brazil’s arts and culture. At one stage they were showered with confetti and entertained to some great fireworks.
Back home, Great Britain was over the moon. Team GB won gold, silver and bronze ending up with a total of 67. Among them was 27 gold! The great result meant GB soared to second place on the medal table. Wow!!!
Anyway back to the ceremony. One of the biggest cheers of the night came when Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe appeared out of a huge green box. It surprised everyone because he was dressed as the computer game character Super Mario, apparently he’s the symbol of the 2020 Games in Tokyo. What a crazy taster of what’s to come.
We can’t wait! the video has it all
