In celebrating the 100-year anniversary of the 1912 Olympic Games in Stockholm, Sweden, the Swedish Olympic Committee is running a project called “Olympic Day” where school kids can meet Olympians, try different sports and challenge themselves by being active in sports.
From May 8 to 11, the Olympic Days were held at the venue in Stockholm where the 1912 games were held, Stockholm Stadion. The clubs Stockholm Baseball and Söder Softball worked together in showing the games of baseball and softball to over 1.900 kids. Coaches from Stockholm and Söder worked tirelessly throughout the days to show the fundamentals of the game to the kids.
Before trying the different sports available, the kids got the complete Olympic experience by walking into the Stadion to the Olympic song, and a torch relay of the Olympic Day version of the official torch.
The coaches from Stockholm and Söder also got the opportunity to run the torch relay together with the kids during the Olympic Days.
