With the closing ceremony on September 5, 2021, the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games officially came to an end. The torch has been since then passed to Beijing for the Winter Paralympic Games 2022 and Paris for the Summer Paralympic Games 2024. They took place from August 24 to September 5, 2021.
The worldwide COVID-19 pandemic forced the postponement of the event until 2021. Tokyo had been in a state of emergency, thus the event had to be held behind closed doors, with no actual audience members allowed in the venues. Tokyo hosted the Summer Paralympics for the second time since the 1964 Games, and the third time after the 1998 Winter Paralympics that the Paralympics have been held in Japan.
For the first time, the Paralympics were held in Tokyo more than once. There were more than 4,350 participants competing in 22 different sports - including two new ones - during the course of the nine-day competition in Japan. Instead of sailing and 7-a-side football, badminton and taekwondo were included in the 2020 Paralympic Games.
