Sport: celebrating Olympic Day
The Principality has just celebrated "Olympic Day", on the initiative of the Monegasque Olympic Committee (COM). Ten mixed teams, each consisting of twelve Year 5 pupils from primary schools in Monaco, gathered for a "Kids Athletics" morning at the Espace Saint Antoine (ESA). Each class wore an Olympic colour associated with a continent. Above and beyond this sporting event, which took place in the presence of H.E. Ms. Yvette Lambin-Berti, Secretary General of the Monegasque Olympic Committee, this Olympic Day was based on three main aspects: moving, learning and discovering. Nine Olympians attended the event to ensure the sporting events ran smoothly.
