On June 23rd, athletes from all over the world will unite to commemorate the 126th anniversary of the International Olympic Committee’s founding. Olympic Day 2020 will see Olympians, athletes and fans from all over the globe get active in the world’s largest 24-hour online Olympic workout.
Twenty-three Olympic athletes have already joined the recording of an official Olympic Day workout video, and on Olympic Day, athletes from around the world will lead live workouts at 11 a.m. local time across 20 time zones on @olympics Instagram live. Among them, USA gymnast Laurie Hernandez and the brilliant biathlete Martin Fourcade. Arianna Fontana, the youngest Italian to medal at the Winter Games, who took gold in the 500m short track in 2018 in PyeongChang, will lead the workout on the MilanoCortina2026 Instagram account.
“Celebrating Olympic Day may feel very different from all previous years, but at the same time, on this Olympic Day, our message of the power of sport to bring hope and optimism to everyone resonates even stronger,” said IOC President Thomas Bach. “Let us join together to use this power of sport to prepare the postponed Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 as a moment of solidarity and resilience of humankind,” he added.
