Welcome to OnlyGators.com’s home for nearly three weeks worth of coverage from the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Though the event is taking place in 2021 due to a delay caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, there will be 30 Florida Gators athletes representing 15 countries and competing in as many as 25 separate events across seven disciplines.

There were 31 Gators that qualified for the Olympics; however, basketball player Bradley Beal was removed from the U.S. men’s national team due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols. There are six Florida athletes making repeat appearances at the Olympics with two — Will Claye and Genevieve LaCaze — competing in their third Games. Returning medal winners include Claye, Caeleb Dressel and Deanne Rose. Dressel enters the Olympics expected to compete for most medals won by a single athlete and certainly the most by someone representing the Gators.
