As the world celebrated the 2014 Olympic day recently, Imo state was not left out. The celebration which was held at the Dan Anyiam Stadium was flagged off by the Deputy Governor, Prince Eze Madumere.
Speaking at the event, Prince Madumere identified sports as the uniting force which has sustained Nigeria as a nation.
The annual Olympic Day event is a celebration for youth around the world to observe the Olympic values of Fair Play, Perseverance, Respect and Sportsmanship. It is also a day to celebrate the International Olympic Committee’s 3 pillars: Move, Learn and Discover.
Commemorating the birth of the modern Olympic Games, Olympic Day is not only a celebration, but an international effort to promote fitness and well-being in addition to the Olympic ideals of Fair Play, Perseverance, Respect and Sportsmanship.
Here are some photographs from the event.
To every sportsman/woman reading this post, we salute you! Just like the Deputy Governor advised in his address, don’t relent in your chosen career path. As long as you remain dedicated, fame will come calling.
