Tokyo, Japan: Over 10,000 people participated in the 37th Olympic Day Festa in Tohoku. The programme featured sport, various games and activities for children and a chance to meet Olympians such as Olympic swimming champion Ai Shibata, who shared her passion for sport and Olympism. The Japanese NOC has planned to hold such events until the end of March 2014 under the slogan “Smiles Come from Sports” in an effort to support children affected by the earthquake and tsunami of 11 March 2011.

These events are being delivered thanks to the “Tsubasa” joint support project of the IOC and the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA). Read more at
