Today we celebrate Olympic Day!

23 June 2020

Olympic Day was first celebrated on 23 June 1948 and has since been marked on calendars as a day of international celebration of the Olympic Movement. 

Olympic Day aims to promote participation in sport, inclusion and the three pillars of the International Olympic Committee: Move, Learn, Discover. 

The Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) has encouraged Australians to get involved in the Olympic Day celebrations by taking part in their #OlympicDayGoals campaign which kicked off earlier this month. The campaign challenged Australians to set a personal goal at the beginning of the month and to achieve this goal on or before 23 June. 

Queensland’s Aly Bull (canoe sprint), Alyce Wood (canoe sprint) and Matthew Denny (athletics) are just some of the athletes who took part in the AOC’s Olympic Day Challenge.
