Hundreds of kids enjoyed the Olympic Day with Kelly Sildaru


Hundreds of children interested in sports took part in the Olympic day in Rakvere, East Estonia. The children were able to try different sports, take part in competitions and meet Olympic bronze medallist, freestyle skier Kelly Sildaru and admire her Barbie doll.

On the Olympic Day, everyone interested could try canoeing, table tennis, fencing, ski jumping, biathlon, discgolf, taekwondo, archery, skateboarding, motocross and play football, handball, basketball and wheelchair basketball.  

The smallest, 2-6-year-old kids participated in kids' run and received a special medal from Kelly Sildaru. The mood was lightened up with the concert by singer Stefan, who represented Estonia at Eurovision 2022 in Turin.  

Olympic Day is nowadays developing into much more than a run or just a sports event. Based on the three pillars “move”, “learn” and “discover”, National Olympic Committees are deploying sports, cultural and educational activities that address everybody - regardless of age, gender, social background or sporting ability. The Olympic Day is meant to celebrate the beginning of the contemporary Olympic movement in 1894, when Pierre de Coubertin's proposal to revive the tradition of the Olympic Games was unanimously approved in Sorbonne, Paris, and the International Olympic Committee was established.
