SOCHI, Russia: The head of the organizers for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, former Japanese prime minister Yoshiro Mori, on Sunday said he had been inspired by the opening of Sochi 2014 to make even greater efforts for Japan’s Games. Mori said that Tokyo, which won the right to host the 2020 Games at the IOC session in Buenos Aires in September, would make the Olympics a symbol of Japan’s reconstruction after the 2011 earthquake. He said that during the Sochi opening ceremony “I was filled with emotion and thought of welcoming the Olympic flame in Tokyo. I resolved to make even further efforts for the successful hosting of the Games.”
