OLYMPIC Day 2016 Olympism4Humanity at Harvard

Abstract:

The Olympism4Humanity Alliance in partnership with MAHPERD (Massachusetts Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance) will celebrate the International Olympic Day at Harvard University exactly one month before the opening of the Rio Olympics. The origins of Olympism and their history dating back to Greece but most of all its meaning to education and society will be discussed with Olympic scholars, Harvard professors as well as an Olympic Gold medalist, Harvard alumna and International Olympic Committee member, Angela Ruggiero. A display of Olympic memorabilia and publications will also be available that day.
