Hamilton, Bermuda—19 June 2015: The Bermuda Olympic Association (BOA) today announced details of 2015 Olympic Day Celebrations in Bermuda.

On the afternoon of Tuesday, 23 June 2015 (from 1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.), to mark international Olympic Day, the BOA in cooperation with the Bermuda Hockey Federation, the Bermuda Football Rugby Union and the Bermuda School Sports Federation will hold an interactive sports demonstration and educational programme for primary school students at the National Sports Centre.

Under the theme “Move, Learn, Discover”, approximately 100 students aged 10 to 13 will learn about Olympic values and the role of sport in society.  This will include information on the many opportunities—for travel, education and recognition— that are opened up to young people who pursue sporting accomplishments.  Attendees will also have the opportunity to learn about the games of Hockey and Rugby and try their hands at these sports after demonstrations from representatives from each sport.

Olympic Day events are held annually in 160 countries to mark the birth of the modern-day Olympic movement on the anniversary of the founding of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) on 23 June 1894. National Olympic Committees around the world design sporting celebrations and educational events for youth to encourage healthy, active lifestyles and promote the Olympic values of fun, fairness, respect, personal growth, leadership and peace.

The Bermuda Olympic Association (“BOA”) today announced that BOA President, Judy Simons, has been appointed a Member of the International Olympic Committee’s (“IOC”) Olympic Education Commission.

On 26 May 2015, IOC President Thomas Bach introduced widespread changes to the composition and functions of various IOC Commissions stemming from reforms adopted as part of the Olympic Agenda 2020.  Among the changes introduced was the splitting of the former Culture and Education Commission into separate Commissions: the Culture and Olympic Heritage Commission; and the Olympic Education Commission. The latter is focused on Olympism in Action and the IOC’s Youth Strategy.

The changes also saw an increase in the number of women on the various IOC Commissions to 32%, an increase of 49% from 2013.

Mrs. Simons joins 17 other Members of the Education Commission, which is chaired by Philip Craven, MBE.

Mrs. Simons said, “I am honoured to have been appointed to the Olympic Education Commission.  I look forward to working with my fellow Members as we work to advance the ideals of Olympism among the world’s youth.”

Mrs. Simons’ appointment to the Education Commission is her fourth international appointment since becoming President of the BOA in 2008.
