Tokyo Olympics: the coins

Japan has fallen under the hypnotism of the Olympics, but who can blame them? because since its origins the Olympics stopped wars promising men glory and honour. And the journey to Olympia was a pilgrim more than a simple trip.

If you won, a statue will be erected in your honour, and next to your name, the name of your family and your town will be inscribed, so the fame of your glory will be shared with those dearest to you, the winner, who now will be counted among the immortals and semi-gods because only those who had the special blessing of the Gods could reach such triumph.

Time hasn't changed the expectation the games brings, so without any further ado, I leave you with the coins that commemorate the 2020 Olympic games, a year the actual games take place.

PS: I understand that in various languages the words: hypnotism and erect; could be understood as negative words, but please see those words in the context of the text. And that every language has different structures. What in your language can be a bad word, in another is just simply a descriptive word ☺️
