With each Olympic Games comes the opportunity for audiences across the globe to get excited and interested about new sports. For example, did you know that it was at our own Sydney Olympics in 2000 that the triathlon and taekwondo first debuted on the Olympic stage?
This year, the Tokyo Olympics (still branded as Tokyo 2020) will itself debut five new sports, from surfing to rock climbing and even skateboarding.
We took a look to see where you can have a go at one of these sports and let out your inner Olympian. Who knows – you might just have what it takes to bring home the gold.
