Happy Olympic Day! 23/06/2019


Olympic Day has been celebrated around the world on June 23rd to commemorate the birth of the modern Olympic Games on the same day back in 1894.

Over the last 20 years Olympic Day has been associated with Olympic Day Runs all over the world. Olympic Day is nowadays much more than just a run or a sports event. It has developed into the only annual worldwide celebration of the Olympic Movement and is a day to promote a healthy and active lifestyle.  

Based on the three pillars of "Move", "Learn", and "Discover", National Olympic Committees are organising sports, cultural and educational activities for all, regardless of age, gender, social background or sporting ability. 

In the lead-up to and on 23 June, the IOC and the Olympic Movement at large also activate their global communication channels, both digital and social media, to promote Olympic Day activities and the importance of leading an active lifestyle. 

Through the hashtag #OlympicDay, members of the public, Olympians, fans, volunteers, celebrities, coaches, international and national federations, National Olympic Committees and many other organisations all join the movement, sharing online how they are being physically active for Olympic Day or contributing to celebrations or events organised by National Federations and Olympic Committees. 

The World DanceSport Federation (WDSF) will celebrate Olympic Day in style this year with the 2019 WDSF World Breaking Championship in Nanjing, China.
