What is Olympic Day?
Olympic Day is much more than just a sports event, it is an opportunity for the world to get active, learn about Olympic values and discover new sports.
This year, athletes all over the world are reassessing their goals in a COVID-19 world, so our #OlympicDayGoals campaign encourages the general public and school students to do the same.
What is #OlympicDayGoals?
Inspired by Olympians and their goal-setting, we're encouraging you to realise how much can be achieved in just three weeks, if you set a goal and stick at it.
Set a goal at the start of June 2020 which you would like to achieve by Olympic Day - 23 June 2020.
Together we will celebrate our progress and achievements on Olympic Day.
