Get into the Olympic spirit and Get Active!

03/06/2013

It’s that time of the year again; time to get active ahead of Olympic Day on 23 June.

With a little over a year to go to the second Summer Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing, many of the future YOG athletes will be training hard to qualify for next year. But what are you doing to get into the Olympic spirit this June?

Whether you like running, horse riding, swimming, tennis, mini-golf or the Harlem shake, get active and you could be in with a chance to win a trip to Lausanne, Switzerland, next October. All you have to do is take a photo of yourself doing sport and share it with us by posting it on the official Olympic Day contest page on Facebook.

You can also check out all the latest Olympic-themed activities taking place worldwide or near you on the world map on www.olympic.org/olympicday

Be sporty, have fun, and we look forward to hearing from you!
