While the whole world is getting excited now about Rio 2016, the Olympic Movement is constantly moving and planning for future events. Jayne will be heading to Rio later this week to work with the observation team from Tokyo 2020. There she will bring to bear her unrivalled Olympic press operations experience on behalf of the organising committee for the next summer Olympic Games after Rio.

Jayne met with key colleagues from Tokyo 2020 in Rio in 2014 and has been to visit their offices in Tokyo, a city she last visited for the 1991 IAAF World Championships in Athletics.

We are delighted to cement this relationship with Tokyo 2020 and are greatly looking forward to working with them over the next four years and to helping them maximise the benefits of their visit to Rio on this occasion.
