This year Team GB will be celebrating Olympic Day on 23 June over five days by encouraging the nation to get active and by promoting the Olympic Values of friendship, excellence and respect.
As the United Kingdom continues to operate under the Government’s lockdown guidelines, Team GB will be providing families and schoolteachers with a range of Get Set and Travel to Tokyo resources to inspire young people to maintain healthy, active lifestyles.
Get Set is the British Olympic Association (BOA) and British Paralympic Association’s youth engagement programme. It was initially created as the official London 2012 education programme to deliver against Lord Coe’s vision to use the Games to inspire a generation of young people. Travel to Tokyo, part of the Get Set initiative, aims to encourage children and their families to try new activities in the run up to the Tokyo 2020 and Paralympic Games, which have been delayed until 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

A host of Team GB Olympians and Tokyo 2020 hopefuls, including Travel to Tokyo ambassadors Laviai Nielson (athletics) and Anthony Ogogo (former boxer), have devised bespoke workouts for parents and schoolteachers to try at home or in the classroom, as well as a series of fun fitness challenges.
