Sports diplomacy is an important tool to facilitate communication among countries and cultures. For many countries, hosting a major sporting event, such as the Olympic Games, is a way to increase international prestige; however, these events can also be a powerful platform for promoting gender and racial equity. For the first time in history, the Tokyo Olympics later this year will have almost an equal number of female and male athletes. How can we build on this progress to ensure more diverse representation in sports?
