The goal set by the Nippon Badminton Association (NBA) for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics is 6 medals in total, with 3 gold medals.

With the added home advantage, many badminton experts, however, are predicting that Japan might be able to pull off a clean sweep at this year’s Olympics.

The reward announced by the national association is 10 million yen (91,160 USD) for a gold medal, 5 million yen (45,580 USD) for a silver medal and 3 million yen (27,340 USD) for a bronze medal.

NBA Secretary General Kinji Zeniya said, “I am prepared for a (budget) deficit.”
