- 1 The Complete Guide to Black Swimmers in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo
Olympic games are a special opportunity for all of us to take the focus off of ourselves and stand in appreciation of all that the world is achieving. Each of the Olympic athletes represent entire countries full of individuals who have invested countless years of love, sacrifice, training, nutrition, protection and hope into these special athletes. None of them reached the Olympic stadium alone and all of them are deserving of our attention and praise.
For Black Kids Swim, the Olympic Games is a time to connect with the international Black swim community. Black swimmers from around the world coming together to meet one another, share their passion for the sport of competitive swimming, and compete in honor of their home country.
Black Kids Swim Highlights Black Swimmers in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo
We encourage our swimmers and families to draw inspiration and motivation from all of the Black swimmers who have trained and prepared to compete as Olympians. All of them have a story to share – and we want you to meet them and be inspired! In service to the BKS community, we created the hashtag #BlackOlympicSwimmers so you can easily meet all of the Black swimmers competing in Tokyo. You can learn which countries they represent and which events they will compete in.
Watch the Races of Black Olympic Swimmers
Even more, we created a Watching Guide so you can easily know when the Black swimmers are competing and never miss a race! The Black Kids Swim watching guide will tell you who is swimming, their country, and their event.
