TV Globo’s Olympic studio will be in Rio de Janeiro, not Tokyo


It’s a tradition. On each Olympics, a TV Globo sets up a studio in the host city to broadcast the competitions. The pandemic, as we know, changed plans across the planet and postponed the Olympic Games in Tokyo in a year. It will be a different edition, full of care and without a public in the stands. And if it’s not possible to go to Tokyo, TV Globo and SporTV bring Tokyo to Brazil, with their Olympic studio built in Rio de Janeiro.

The news was announced this Sunday night at Fantástico and anticipated here by Casual Exam. Globo guarantees that state-of-the-art technology, virtual solutions and real-time images will transport the viewer to the Japanese capital. The magic comes into play on the 23rd, at 8:00 am (GMT), the date of the opening ceremony of the Games. The TV Globo broadcast will be commanded by Galvão Bueno, who will be alongside reporter Marcos Uchôa and commentators who have already experienced the emotions of the biggest sporting event on the planet: ex-athletes Fabi, from volleyball, Flávio Canto, from judo , and Daiane dos Santos, from artistic gymnastics.
