Olympians Cook Is launching website this Olympic Week

Tuesday June 18, 2019 Written by Published in Sports

In celebration of World of Olympic Day, Olympians Cook Islands is launching its official website. 

 

The website features profiles of the 30 Olympians that the country has so far produced.

President of Olympians Cook Islands, Erin Quirke says it is hoped that this online platform will encourage and enable Olympians to stay in touch with each other.

It has been designed to showcase the sporting achievements of athletes as well as their current activities outside of the sporting arena. 

Quirke says the website is both an educational tool and hopefully interesting and inspirational for our country’s youth. 

“A key message from our Olympians is that with a positive nature, hard work and perseverance many things are possible in sport and in life.”

The website will be updated regularly with news and social media content. 

Quirke would like to thank Liam Ratana of Native Media Limited and World Olympians Association for their support in this project.

Cook Island Olympians will feature on 88FM this week running a daily radio quiz and giving away spot prizes so be sure to listen to the morning shows. 

Olympic Day is much more than just a sports event, it is a day for the world to get active and learn the Olympic values. 

Here in Rarotonga, the annual Olympic Day Run is at Punanga Nui Market on Thursday at 5pm. 

The 1km loop track allows participants to walk or run it just once or many times. 

“It is always a feel good social outing for the whole community so get moving and get on down to the Olympic Day Run this Thursday,” Quirke adds.
