Check out the six shortlisted mascots for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic games


With Tokyo 2020 set to kick-off in a little over two years, attentions have turned to the single most important aspect of the Olympics, the mascots.

Three pairs of potential mascots for the event have been revealed. The winner will be voted on by Japanese children.

Unfortunately for you Pokemon out there, Pikachu is not on the shortlist, nor are any other well known Anime characters.

Over 2,000 entries were originally submitted and have been whittled down to six characters.

The voting will take place between December 11 and February 22. Check out the characters in action below. In other recent Olympics news, Russia has been banned from participating in the upcoming 2018 Winter Olympics.
