June 23rd has been set aside by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), as an annual Olympic Day for all of its member countries to celebrate Olympism in meaningful ways. Initially, for some years, the day was identified to all through the staging of the Olympic Day Run – which was a low key casual non-competitive walk/stroll/jog/run as a means of bringing communities together in a casual event that celebrated Olympism without the stringently competitive and patriotic fervor of the Olympic Games, but rather a fun event in which the whole community could participate and enjoy.
The Bermuda Olympic Association has decided the hos an Olympic Quiz which will take place at the Fairmont Hamilton Princess from June 19th – 23rd.
The quiz contest will be concerned with facts, topics and events about Olympism, The Olympics, Olympic History, Olympic Trivia and Bermuda in the Olympic Games.
