Poll: Are you watching the Tokyo Olympics?

This year’s Games kicked off on Friday.

THE TOKYO 2020 Olympics kicked off on Friday at an eerily empty Olympic Stadium, after Covid-19 forced organisers to ban spectators at all but a handful of venues. 

With the Games largely stripped down due to Covid-19, just 116 Irish athletes are participating this year. 

The Olympics are generally watched around the world, with billions due to tune in at some stage.

So, today we want to know… Are you watching the Tokyo Olympics? 

Poll Results:

No, not at all (5009)
Yes, I'm watching as much as possible (2862)
I'll watch a bit of it, if there's nothing else on TV (2554)
Yes, but I'm only watching the Irish events (1016)
