?Preparations are in full swing as the Bahrain Olympic Committee (BOC) is gearing up to celebrate the Olympic Day on June 23, with a packed recreation campaign scheduled to commence next week at Khalifa Park in Arad.
Organising Committee’s Marketing and Publications Committee chairman Hassan Abdullatif said flags and banners will soon be set up across different parts of Bahrain, while a recreation campaign is to be launched through different social networks like twitter, facebook and Instagram, in order to present this annual occasion to the public and invite them to take part.
Abdullatif added that the recreation campaign will feature a variety of programmes, such as entertaining shows, a walkathon, kids games zone, exhibition on health and sport products, as well as other entertaining contests, all to take place from 5pm till 10pm.
The Olympic Day is a celebration for youth around the world to observe the Olympic values of Fair Play, Perseverance, Respect and Sportsmanship. It is also a day to celebrate the International Olympic Committee’s 3 pillars: Move, Learn and Discover.
It was introduced in 1948 to commemorate the birth of the modern Olympic Games on 23 June 1894, with the ultimate goal being to promote participation in sport across the globe regardless of age, gender or athletic ability.
Over the last 20 years, the Olympic Day has been associated with Olympic Day Runs all over the world. From 45 participating National Olympic Committees (NOCs) in the first edition in 1987, the numbers have grown to nearly 200 participating NOCs.
