To celebrate the Olympic Day 2020, Chinese Taipei Olympic Committee (CTOC) organized a flash event in front of the historical and iconic building – Red House Theater, in Ximending, Taipei city. The staff of CTOC carried out a 5-minutes workout session at the north square of the Red House Theater. Through this eye-catching flash event, CTOC successfully raised public awareness towards the importance of staying healthy amid the COVID-19 Pandemic, hence promoted the campaign of #Staystrong and #Stayactive initiated by the International Olympic Committee.
The annual Olympic Day celebration encouraged athletes and the Olympic family all around the world to stick together. Especially amid this challenging time, exercise is emphasized for everyone to stay healthy, both physically and mentally. Therefore, CTOC specifically chose to livestream the workout session also at another famous tourist spot of “Rainbow Pedestrian” in Taipei. Not only to bring the public’s attention to the Olympic value “Excellence, Respect and Friendship”, but also to make tribute to the dedication Taiwan has put to raise awareness of gender equality and LGBT rights.
CTOC also invited many Chinese Taipei athletes to upload their workout photos on social media to promote the #Staystrong campaign. The participating athletes including Hung-Ying LEE (Sport Climbing), Chih-Kai LEE (Gymnastics), Nien-Chin CHEN (Boxing), Yung-Wei YANG (Judo) and many more.
