Complete training sessions or be inspired by a series about the new sporting events

After being postponed for an entire year, the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics is officially underway. And while most of us are still stuck at home catching various events on the telly, you can now imagine you’re at the Tokyo Olympics all thanks to the OG video sharing social media app Snapchat.

Just open up your app to check out several cool new features like the innovative Augmented Reality (AR) Lens titled Train like an Olympian, which makes use of Snap’s body-tracking technology. Conceived by the official Olympics account, snapchatters can stay active by completing three exercises before the time runs out and be rewarded with a virtual firework display at the end of the workout routine.


There are also a couple of International Olympic Committee shows available on Snapchat. These include the Best of Olympics, which covers the top athletes and stories of the past editions of the Olympics, as well as Unleash the New, which shares the inspiring stories of five athletes who are set to appear in some of the new sports debuting at the Games.


Snapchat is also offering organic Olympic-themed Cameos in the Sticker drawer and Chat throughout the Tokyo Games, so Snapchatters in Singapore may show support for the many homegrown talents too.

Now you can get into the spirit of the Games even from the comforts of home.
