Hong Kong, China, October 16, 2020: The COVID-19 pandemic has forced the world into lockdown and the postponement of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games to next July.
In response, the IOC launched the #StayStrong, #StayActive and #StayHealthy campaign on June 23, 2020, gathering the Olympic movement together for the annual Olympic Day celebration of sport and Olympic values by creating the world’s largest 24-hour Olympic virtual workout.
In support of this movement, the Sports Federation & Olympic Committee of Hong Kong, China now launches a series of celebration activities on Friday, October 16, including the BINGO Challenges on its Facebook page and the Olympic Day panel exhibition in shopping malls.
The Federation canceled the Olympic Day Fun Run in June and moved the Olympic Day 2020 celebration online in October.
Supported by the National Sport Associations and athletes, nine sports-related challenges were selected and filmed to teach the public how to “play” sports even at home! The public are invited to take part in this “BINGO Challenges” and will have opportunity to win event T-shirts and prizes.
