From June 21-30, 2013 communities across the United States will celebrate Olympic Day through educational programming and other activities.
Olympic Day is a celebration for youth around the world to observe the Olympic values of Fair
Play, Perseverance, Respect and Sportsmanship. It is also a day to celebrate the International Olympic Committee’s 3 pillars: Move, Learn and Discover.
As part of the Olympic Day celebration, the USOEC weightlifting team spoke with children from Northern Michigan University’s Wildcat Youth Camp about the sport and performed demonstrations. The camp is finishing a week-long program about the Olympics.
