Even though it is still ongoing, Tokyo Olympics 2020 has already witnessed quite a number of events that could be called major achievements. Take Talha Talib, for example. Even though he lost the medal and was eliminated, he still earned enormous support from his country, Pakistan. Moreover, two players facing an Israeli withdrew from Tokyo Olympics altogether.
