On June 23, Australian Olympians, Olympic sport federations and Olympic fans worldwide will celebrate Olympic Day and its global theme, ‘Move, Learn, Discover.’
Olympic Day is a chance to celebrate everything Australians love about the Olympics – teamwork, sportsmanship and doing your very best both on and off the sporting field.
For 2020, Olympic Day has taken on a new significance given the global pandemic and isolation within the COVID-19 environment, but that doesn’t stop us from keeping active and reassessing our goals, just like athletes working towards Tokyo 2020 in 2021.
This year, the Australian Olympic Team encourages all Aussies to set a personal goal on 1 June 2020 that they hope to achieve by Olympic Day on 23 June, 2020.
Your goal can be just for yourself, or you can challenge your teammates – it can be anything you’d like!
Get your thinking caps on and decide your Olympic Day Goal and pledge it on social media on June 1, using the #OlympicDayGoals pledge cards for Facebook / Twitter, Instagram or Instagram stories.
Encourage your mates to also accept the challenge by tagging them on social media, where you can support each other by sharing your weekly progress, tagging @AUSOlympicTeam and #OlympicDayGoals.
Schools and Teachers can also access an #OlympicDayGoals activity planner for the month of June and goal setting cards for the classrooms HERE.
Then, on 23 June – Olympic Day – everyone will come together across Australia to show how they’ve achieved their #OlympicDayGoals!
Gather your mates, get planning and set yourself a goal ready for June 1!
