Tokyo 2020 Olympic organizers have released a report outlining their readiness for the Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games. According to the report, more than half of all venues have been completed with just a year to go.

In total, 43 venues will be used, including 8 new construction projects, 25 existing structures, and ten temporary venues. The Musashino Forest Sport Plaza, Yumenoshima Park Archery Field, Sea Forest Waterway, Kasai Canoe Slalom Centre, and Oi Hockey Stadium are all 100% complete at this point.

Olympic Stadium, Ariake Arena and Tokyo Aquatics Centre remain under construction, but check-in at 90%, 83% and 75% complete, respectively. Swimming, diving, and artistic swimming will be taking place in the Tokyo Aquatics Centre, while water polo is slated for the existing Tatsumi facility.

The first ever man-made kayaking facility in Japan has been started, the most recent venue to be worked on. The Olympic stadium is set to be revealed in December.
