The anticipation for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games has been building toward peak excitement as there are 500 days remaining until the beginning of the planetary most popular sporting event.

The organizers are busily working on the construction and reconstruction of facilities that will host competitors from all over the world. To show the progress they have made, the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games posted a video on its social media on the current state of the venues including Ariake Arena that will host both men’s and women’s Volleyball tournament, starting July 25.

Ariake Arena is designed to hold 12,000 spectators and is one of the six new venues that will be built ahead of the Summer Olympics in the capital city of Japan. Building Ariake Arena is expected to cost around $320 million and will be done in late 2019. After the Games, the arena will become a new sporting and cultural center of Tokyo.

RUS W: Despite renewing with Dinamo Moscow, Ognjenović will join VakıfBank

Wow! Ognjenović had some heated clashes with the Vakifbank coach on court while she was playing for EcZ. I have seen in one video that she was screaming at him. Ognjenović is fiery and the captain of the National Serbia team and is considered one of the best setters (and smart) in the world. I like this move. The current setter for Vakifbank makes bad decisions(and poor sets) at bad times that caused them. Reply
