0

A video is being shared on social media with a claim that it shows the ‘utterly insane level of competition in Gymnastics at the Tokyo Olympic games this year’. Let’s fact-check whether the posted video is related to the Tokyo Olympics.

Claim: Video shows the gymnastics competition at the Tokyo Olympics this year.

Fact: The video is an old one. The visuals in the video are not related to the Tokyo Olympics. Hence, the claim made in the post is MISLEADING.

When the screenshots of the video were run through Google Reverse Image Search, the same video was found being shared on the internet at least since June 2020. So, the video is not related to the Tokyo Olympics which began in July 2021. Also, many other videos with similar visuals were found on the internet. One of those videos was posted in 2018 and has the title – ‘2018 Trampoline Gymnastics | Tumbling | Moments’.

The visuals in the posted video can be also found in the videos related to the ‘2018 Trampoline Gymnastics World Championships’. However, the posted video has multiple clips from different events.

To sum it up, an unrelated video is shared as the visuals of gymnastics competition at the Tokyo Olympics.

Share.
