World Fit 2016
Olympians Join Forces With Schoolchildren to Launch World Fit 2016 with 'Walk to Rio'
British and U.S. Olympians will join 11,500 school children to launch World Fit 2016 by taking part in a ‘Walk to Rio’ as part of a campaign to get young people active. This is the first year the World Fit initiative has been trialled outside of the United States with the World Olympians Association (WOA) and the British Olympians Association working in partnership to facilitate the programme’s expansion.
At the UK launch of World Fit 2016 in Coventry today, a host of British Olympians joined more than 100 children from local schools along with dignitaries and special guests for the official welcome ceremony before kicking off the ‘Walk to Rio’ campaign by completing their first mile together.
