You can have a try but it may be rejected. The rejection rate in the third country is generally much higher, especially when you are just a tourist there.

Yes, it does. However, sometimes the sponsor may offer some special identity registration card by which athletes can enter China without a visa. In addition to this, all teams should apply for M visas.

If you only visit HK, you don't need to apply for a Chinese visa. US citizens can stay in HK without a visa for at most 90 days. If you plan to visit other Chinese mainland cities, you do need to obtaining a visa in advance. However, there will be a high risk of being rejected if applying in Tokyo as a tourist.

You can also take advantage of China 144-hour visa free transit, if you only plan to visit a single city/area in China.
