The Tokyo 2020 Olympic master competition schedule was published Tuesday, beginning with softball and women’s soccer two days before the Opening Ceremony and concluding with the men’s marathon, among other events, on the day of the Closing Ceremony.

A record 33 sports featuring a record 339 medal events (33 more events than in Rio) take place from July 24-Aug. 9 at the site of the 1964 Games.

The first events -- preliminary softball games -- will be July 22, a Wednesday morning, in Fukushima, an area hit by a 2011 earthquake and nuclear disaster, or Tuesday night in the U.S. with the time difference.

The first medal event is the women’s 10m air rifle, as it was in Rio, where rising West Virginia sophomore Ginny Thrasher stunned for gold.

The complete event-by-event session schedule organized by sport is available here.
