cover: In Japan, the 2019 International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements was a well followed year-long celebration that culminated with the IYPT global closing ceremony* in Tokyo on December 5. For the land of the rising sun, which a few years ago was also recognized in element 113, Nh, the celebrations continue this year with the 2020 Summer Olympics. Elements of Sports will showcase how science and also new materials are so important to the event. See feature page 5. Cover illustration by Hayanon Science Manga Studio.
