Olympic Day was introduced in 1948 to commemorate the birth of the modern Olympic Games on 23 June 1894 at the Sorbonne in Paris. The goal was to promote participation in sport across the globe regardless of age, gender or athletic ability.
President of the International Olympic Committee, Mr. Thomas Bach had opined: “Every year, Olympic Day allows the whole world to unite behind the Olympic dream.” Guyana is no different.
President of the Guyana Sport Shooting Foundation, Ms. Vidushi Persaud-McKinnon noted that on June 23rd every year, millions of people across the world get active to celebrate Olympic Day. She went on to say that in Guyana, the Guyana Sport Shooting Foundation/Archery Guyana will commemorate this day by hosting an Indoor Archery Competition among their registered members.
