Olympic Day is a celebration of sport, health and living together. It invites everyone around the world to be active and move with purpose on June 23 every year.
Participants from around the world will commemorate the International Olympic Committee’s founding day at the Sorbonne in Paris.
Olympic Day celebrations date back to 1947.
Czech IOC member Dr Gruss pitched the idea of a World Olympic Day at the 41st Session of the International Olympic Committee in Stockholm, Sweden, which would set aside a day to celebrate all that the Olympic Movement stands for
In 2022, the Olympic Day theme is Together for a peaceful world, and is accompanied by the social media hashtags #MoveForPeace and #OlympicDay.
This Olympic Day celebrates the power of sport to bring people together in peace.
When we move together, we stand together. How are you #MoveForPeace?
Anyone can be part of Olympic Day, and with so many people doing so much on Olympic Day, why not join in the fun?
