Dragon Ball Z’s Goku Is An Ambassador Of The 2020 Tokyo Olympics

Recommended Posts

"Nope this is not a joke. His dad is called Akira Toriyama and must be very proud. He’s 5’8?, had a monkey tail as a child and also fought off some of the universe’s biggest threats. He beat his friend Pikachu and the rest of the Pokemon for the spot of ambassador of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic games. We’re of course talking of the unique Son Goku.

The Tokyo Olympics are three years away but the Olympic committee has already settled on a decision. Goku is a worldwide renowned Japanese character and he’s worth investing in merchandise for the Olympics. He will feature alongside other Japanese pop culture icons Naruto, Sailor Moon, One Piece‘s Luffy and even Mario.
Aiming for younger audiences
During the Rio Olympics closing ceremony on August 21, 2016, the Japanese prime minister announced that Japanese culture will be fundamental for 2020. Shinzo Abe actually came out of a green tube dressed as Super Mario. Aiming for a younger audience, the Olympic committee is hoping to bring everyone together for this edition.
2020 is three years away so meanwhile have a look at the upcoming merch, available on the Tokyo2020shop.jp website (in Japanese)."

What a joke.

 

Not really, Anime is part of the Japanese life style, it's basically just using any old American celeb

Using a fictional character is laughable.

Mr Bean showed up at the 2012 Olympics (they used the character, rather than the actor)

 

Plus if "The Undertaker" showed up, it would be a fictional character

Tbf, they always have a fictional character as an ambassador. Usually they create their own though.
