Global sports community moves together with purpose for Olympic Day
The global sports community is today marking Olympic Day by celebrating sport, health and peace by moving together with purpose.
Celebrated annually, Olympic Day commemorates the creation of the modern Olympic Games and International Olympic Committee (IOC) by Pierre de Coubertin on 23 June 1894 in Paris.
To celebrate the day, the IOC is encouraging the world to get active – regardless of age, gender, social background or sporting ability – under the theme Together, For a Peaceful World. Across the globe, Olympic Day runs, events and other activities are being held to mark the day and get communities moving.
