Twitter Reveals The Moments That Defined The Tokyo Olympics

Although living in lockdown has been pretty disheartening for millions of Australians in recent weeks, the Tokyo Olympics provided a valuable escape for many of us.

It didn’t hurt either that medal haul from the Tokyo Games equaled the previous best, with 17 golds across a handful of different events.

To help us relive some of the best moments from Tokyo, Twitter has revealed the most mentioned sports, athletes, emojis and more.

Without further ado, here is Twitter’s best of Tokyo 2020.
