^^ Both more likely choices than my suggestion,, but in any case...

Takashi Ono

Japan's most decorated (13 medals) Olympic athlete, who earned one of his 5 Gold (note: another gymnast earned more Gold, but not more total medals) at Tokyo 1964. He would be 89yo for the 2020 Games.

ooo, perfect choice! He even comes with built-in flame! Maybe he could be the cauldron.

If not Koji Murofushi or Shun Fujimoto, then maybe Naoko Takahashi or Mizuki Noguchi.

Gamera. :mrgreen:

Hell; while we're at it, maybe Hedorah can spit a toxic mudball up toward the cauldron, and we can watch as the sludge smolders, and as it is fed by the gas coming out of the cauldron's pipes, it suddenly bursts into flames! :twisted: :lol:
