Olympic Day celebrations in virtual base

The National Olympic Committee of Sri Lanka (NOCSL) will celebrate the birth of the modern Olympics on June 23 at the Olympic House premises in Colombo commencing at 10.00 a.m. to 11.30 a.m. with the participation of maximum 25 personalities.

According to most accounts, the man solely responsible for reviving the modern Olympic Games was Baron Pierre de Coubertin.

Therefore, the NOCSL is conducting the annual Olympic Day celebrations to commemorate and respect the noble commitment of the founder on June 23. However, this year’s Olympic Day would be celebrated in virtual base due to the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Accordingly, this year’s Olympic Day is set to be celebrated in a virtual platform by connecting villages, regions, cities in Sri Lanka and in selected global cities to display the solidarity with various special activities. In fact, this approach is a complete change of the usual celebration of Olympic Day and is expected to reach the heart of true Olympic Spirits.
