Namie Amuro will provide the theme song for NHK's coverage of the 2016 Olympics and Paralympics.

Titled "Hero", the song has been described as a powerful song that will "resonate within the hearts of the viewers". 

"Athletes face this grand stage once every 4 years. Together with this dynamic music, we expect to boost people's expressions, and raise everyone's excitement," NHK said.

Amuro stated she's very proud and honored over providing the theme track. She also cheered on the athletes in the games, and hope the song encourage them. 

"Hero" will also be used as theme song for sporting events leading up to the Olympics, like championships in gymnastics and swimming.
