Who are ISV, MAR, TPE and more? Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games Country Codes Explanation

The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games are finally underway after a year of delay due to the Covid-19 pandemic. No spectators are allowed at any of the venues used for the event after Japan declared a state of emergency in the country due to increased cases of the virus.

However, there is still an opportunity for fans to cheer on their home country with more than 11,300 athletes looking to win a medal for their team this summer.

There are representatives from the 206 countries of the Olympic Village in Tokyo, from Belgium to Taiwan (Chinese Taipei) and from Sweden to Uzbekistan.

Most viewers know who GBR, AUS, USA, GER, and NED are associated with, but do you know who MAR, ISV, and TPE are used for?

Fear not, without further ado Birmingham Live is breaking down each country’s Olympic code at this summer’s Games and to make it even better, it’s listed alphabetically.
