“Trying archery and seeing world class athletes demonstrate their skills is a unique opportunity we are excited bring to our community.” – Jessica Schmer, Central Texas Archery Vice President

Olympic Day is a celebration of the Olympic Movement and the joy of sport by millions of people around the world.  An initiative stemming from the International Olympic Committee, Olympic Day was created in 1948 to commemorate the birth of the modern Olympic Games on June 23, 1894. On that day, delegates from 12 countries unanimously approved Baron Pierre de Coubertin’s proposal to revive the Olympic Games, and two years later the first modern Olympic Games were held in Athens, Greece in 1896.
