A historic day in that for the first time ever was it a joint day of events shared between the IOC Athletes’ Commission and the World Olympians Association. Focused on communication, leadership and how the two communities could help each, Monday was all about inclusivity and diversity.
The day began with a panel discussion on the two organisations represented by IOC Vice-Chair Danka Bartekova, WOA President Joel Bouzou and IOC Sports Director Kit McConnell who spoke about the wide range of resources they contribute to their respective communities and then offered to answer questions from the participants.
Post lunch, a session on life skills that would heavily influence and educate the participants stole the show with specific lessons on leadership, communication and teamwork.
