Papua New Guinea Olympic Committee
The Papua New Guinea Olympic Committee held two events to commemorate 2018 Olympic Day. On 22 June, a sports demonstration event for school pupils included several sports and information stations about the Olympic values and Sustainable Development Goals. The following day, the "Relay of Unity" saw individuals from various organisations representing various sectors of society take part in a joint relay event symbolising the power of sport to unite in a non-competitive way to achieve a common goal. All the participants also tried the” Olympic Day Dance” choreographed by the creator of the viral “flossin” dance move.
