Multi-awarded swimmerÂ Kosuke KitajimaÂ shared his thoughts on Tokyoâ€™s bid to host the 2020 Summer Olympics. The 30-year old athlete claims that itâ€™d be a â€œdream come trueâ€ if Tokyo hosts the prestigious sports event following its loss to Rio de Janeiro for the 2016 hosting. Born in Tokyo, KitajimaÂ believes that the publicâ€™s support this time will be favourable for the capitalâ€™s bid. â€œOf course I remember what happened last time, but I donâ€™t think that the public had as much interest in theÂ OlympicsÂ coming to Tokyo then as they do now,â€ he said.
