 Tokyo 2020The International Olympic Committee (IOC) revealed on Friday the next Summer Games, to be held in the Japanese capital, will feature 15 new events from Rio 2016.

These include mixed-gender relays in swimming, athletics and triathlon, as well as mixed team events in archery, fencing and judo.

There will also be a mixed doubles table tennis competition.

The changes mean Tokyo 2020 is set to be the most gender balanced Games in the history of the Olympics in terms of both athletes and events.

It is hoped women's participation will be a record high 48.9%.
