Award-winning South African referee Victor Gomes is going to be one of the match officials at the Tokyo Olympics, which will start on 23 July and end on 8 August.  

The 38-year-old whistleman will become the second South African referee to officiate at the Olympic Games. Jerome Damon was the first South African referee to officiate at the Olympics in Beijing in 2008. 
“Being invited to officiate at the Tokyo Olympic Games is a huge honour for me. I am grateful to SAFA, CAF and FIFA for this recognition. This is the pinnacle point in my career and another step closer to my personal targets. I will need to put on some extra hard work,” Gomes said. 
Gomes from Johannesburg won the 2012/13 and 2017/18 Referee of the Season awards.
