The platform will also offer original programming from the IOC’s award-winning content team, all tailored to the local audience and available in multiple languages. Among the highlights is “Jee Jaan Se: India’s Olympic Hope,” a profile series in which the stories of six of India’s Olympic hopefuls - Amit Panghal, Bajrang Punia, Kamalpreet Kaur, Manu Bhaker, Neeraj Chopra, and Rani Rampal - are told by coaches, family members, loved ones and the athletes themselves. Also available is “The Academy: Forging India’s Badminton Champions,” the all-access docu-series that goes inside India’s Pullela Gopichand Badminton Academy and the lives of its top athletes ahead of Tokyo 2020.

Additionally, fans can get excited for Tokyo 2020 and celebrate India’s Olympic athletes with the “Apne Olympians” song. Indian playback singer Sukhwinder Singh (Grammy and Academy Award-winning song “Jai Ho”) and emerging rapper Dee MC perform the song. The IOC tasked the powerhouse duo to inspire a song and champion the pride of India while creating a rallying cry for their beloved team.

“We’re thrilled to inspire Olympic fans all across India through our digital platforms, bringing Olympic experiences of Tokyo 2020,” said Christopher Carroll, IOC Director of Digital Engagement and Marketing. “With Tokyo 2020 being the most digitally engaged Olympics ever, we have created a single platform for audiences in India to find relevant and compelling content on-demand, further personalizing their Olympic experience.”

In addition, local authorities in India, accompanied by broadcasters and other partners, have launched a trending song challenge called #Cheer4India. Performed by Grammy award-winner A.R. Rahman and young singer Ananya Birla, the song strives to inspire Indian Olympians and urge the public to wholeheartedly rally behind the country’s athletes during the Tokyo Games.
