Sonic at the Olympic Games: Tokyo 2020

Although strictly speaking it is not an application to follow the sporting event, Sonic at the Olympic Games is a good alternative to start preparing the environment. The SEGA game allows you to participate in 15 Olympic events, such as 100 meter dash, 400 meter hurdles, javelin throw, table tennis, BMX, among others. Although the game is free, if you want to take a virtual tour of the entire Olympic city and participate in more events, you will need to buy tickets separately. Anyway, the first few levels are free and well worth a try for some fun.
