Support for disabled athletes growing before 2020 ParalympicsAs Tokyo prepares to host the 2020 Summer Olympics and Paralympics, an increasing number of Japanese companies are throwing their support behind disabled athletes.


Toyota Motor Corp., one of the top sponsors of the 2020 Olympics and Paralympics, recently became a supporter of Special Olympics Japan, which hosted an international athletic event for children and adults with intellectual disabilities in Niigata Prefecture in mid-February.
