Olympic Day, held annually on June 23, is celebrated by thousands of people in more than 160 countries. Commemorating the birth of the modern Olympic Games, Olympic Day is not only a celebration, but an international effort to promote fitness and well-being in addition to Olympic ideals of Fair Play, Perseverance, Respect and Sportsmanship.
The Northwest Unit hosted Olympic Day in Gainesville on June 22, 2011. We had an interview and question session with USA Swimming National Team athlete and 2012 Olympic hopeful, Conor Dwyer as well as a field day to celebrate Olympic Day.
