Support your fellow Olympians and your community

19 | 3 | 2020

As COVID-19 continues to impact all of our lives, we wanted to reach out to you, our fellow Olympians. Our thoughts go out to anyone who has been affected and we hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy.

We are currently experiencing unsettling times but the strength of the Olympic Movement and our National Olympians Associations means that we can all actively contribute according to our motto - Service to Olympians. Service to Society. Now is the perfect opportunity to put these words into action!

It is an unnerving and uncertain time, but in this unprecedented situation one thing remains certain: The Olympian spirit of caring for each other and our communities can be a strength to all of us. There will be many people throughout our communities who will currently be feeling isolated and vulnerable. If you are able to reach out, in a safe way which follows your local guidelines, a phone call from you to offer assistance to your family, friends, neighbours and more could make all the difference. Always remember that you are role models and positive influencers in your communities!
