Olympians gear up for virtual Olympic Day

19 | 6 | 2020

Olympians all over the world are preparing for Olympic Day on 23 June to mark the anniversary of the formation of the modern Olympic Games.

The Olympians Association of India are running a campaign which will include videos on Olympism, virtual mentoring and stories of inspiration on their social media channels.

Canada’s NOA, NOC and AC are joining forces to host a webinar for Olympians with the theme ‘What is your Olympic legacy?’. Alumni Olympians will connect with actively competing Olympians and other athletes sharing insights into how they can build their own legacy.

The reopening of The Japan Olympic Museum, which was closed due to Covid-19, will be celebrated in Japan and can be followed by the rest of the world too.

Staying active and healthy during this challenging period has been so important for many which is why, this year, Olympians everywhere are encouraged to get involved in the IOC’s virtual #StayActive Olympic Day workout. A variety of Olympians, athletes, partners, IFs, NOCs and OCOGs will host a workout on Instagram live for us all to participate in.

You could join in with the community and get involved in a workout at 11am at your local time and you can share your own favourite workout routines. Just be sure to share your videos by using the hashtags #OlympicDay and #StayActive as well as tagging @Olympics and @olympicchannel.

We hope everyone has a very Happy Olympic Day and thank you for all your tireless work that continues to make the world a better place.

We look forward to seeing more of your Olympic Day activities and please share with us via our Facebook and Twitter or by email.
