People from Tokyo are celebrating because their city was chosen to host the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The Japanese Prime Minister thanked the International Olympic Committee and promised that Japan will make sure the Olympic Games will be successful.

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
