YOG athletes receive a special visit for Olympic Day
24 June 2019
OLYMPIC DAY 2019: While Olympic Day is only one day a year, the spirit of the Games has extended well beyond June 23 this year.
Olympians have been visiting the schools of the Buenos Aires 2018 Youth Olympic Team, to honour the young athletes’ achievement and present their school with an Olympic Flag.
A momentous occasion for the YOG athlete, students at the schools have had the chance to congratulate their YOG schoolmate, while meet an Aussie Olympian and hear their inspirational stories.
