Olympic Rings

Lausanne (RWH) Every year on 23 June, birthday of the modern Olympic Games on 23 June 1894 at the Sorbonne in Paris, amateur and professional athletes from all nations celebrate “Olympic Day” to inspire people for sports and the Olympic idea. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) promotes the 2015 event on the website http://www.olympic.org/olympic-day and with social media (Facebook, Twitter und Instagram, hashtag #olympicday). The majority of the 204 NOCs will be organising educational, cultural and sporting activities which are featured on a world map.

In addition to these various activities organised around the world, the IOC asks the millions of fans to get active this June with friends, family or alone. As encouragement, IOC launched a competition inviting people to capture their sporting moments and post photos or videos using #olympicday to be in with a chance to win a trip to Rio for two for a sneak preview of the Rio 2016 Olympic Park ahead of the Games next summer. ©RWH2015
