Croatian Olympic Committee
The Croatian Olympic Committee went above and beyond for their Olympic Day. A blend of unique events organised by the Croatian Olympic Academy (COA) prolonged the celebration of Olympism from April to June. Adopting the theme “we are all part of a global celebration”, they sought to inspire participants to connect with festivities across the rest of the world.

In April 2014, the COA organised an official press conference to outline the upcoming Olympic celebrations and exciting events that were going to happen across Croatia. Over two months, five separate events in different parts of the country were organised to represent and capture the Olympic spirit.

The COA hopes to develop the theme of connecting with the world and reiterate to Olympic Day’s participants that they are part of a global celebration. Because of the success of the 2014 edition and the diversity of its events, the COA, in 2015, will pursue with the same programme and aim to expand the scuba diving educational day. Planning for Olympic Day 2015 by the COA is already underway and a sports photography competition has already been launched, with a winner to be announced at the Youth National Championships in Porec (26 April - 5 May 2015).
The variety of activities, from sport clinics to educating the youth on the environment, makes Croatia’s Olympic Day celebrations unique. For them, it is not just a one day event, rather a multitude of events over two months which commemorates the Olympic Games, the Olympic values and the positive impact of sport on health and society.
