The IOC “Let’s Move and Celebrate” initiative invites the world to experience the joy of moving before Paris 2024 for better mental and physical health

“The Olympic Games are an opportunity for the world’s best athletes to show what the human body is capable of,” said Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO Director-General. “But you don’t have to be an Olympian to be active, WHO is proud to once again partner with the IOC on the campaign.”Let’s go “, to encourage people of all ages to be more physically active and healthier.”

Athletes preparing for Paris 2024, including gymnast Noemi Romero and rugby player Eduardo Lopez, as well as Olympic legends such as Alistair Brownlee and Lindsey Vonn, have responded to the rallying cry to encourage the world to move more.

Brownlee, a double Olympic triathlon gold medalist in Great Britain, said: “Let’s go is an excellent initiative, because it demonstrates to everyone the joy and simplicity of movement. Movement and exercise are important to everyone’s health and it’s great to see how the Olympic movement can transcend all fitness levels to encourage everyone to move in their own way.”

The theme for this year’s Olympic Day is Let’s move and celebrate. Established in 1948, Olympic Day is a global celebration of sport and physical activity that takes place every year on 23 June to commemorate the day the IOC was founded in 1894 and the birth of the modern Olympic Games.
