Welcome to a special Slate News Quiz about the 2020 Olympics. Your host, Ray Hamel, has concocted questions about the athletes and events to watch in Tokyo.
At the end of the quiz, you’ll be able to compare your score with that of the average contestant, as well as with the score of a Slatester who has agreed to take the quiz on the record. This week’s contestant is associate editor Seth Maxon, who edits Slate’s sports coverage.
Can you ace the quiz and beat Maxon? Good luck!
