Bwin’ s New Generation of Olympic Medalists celebrated the Olympic Day by sending their own messages about the values of sport.
The 23rd of June marks the day that the International Olympic Committee was created and decided that the Olympic Games should be held in Athens. Every year, all National Olympic Committees celebrate the “Olympic Day” on this very day. This year, the Hellenic Olympic Committee and the National Olympic Academy of Greece jointly promoted a new way to celebrate, inviting people to join them with relevant posts on Social Media.
