Team GB supports International Women’s Day – Sunday 8 March
To mark International Women’s Day on 8 March – when female social, economic, cultural and political achievements will be celebrated – Team GB will be celebrating the past, present and future of British Olympic females and tie the day to their Tokyo 2020 marketing campaign, This Is What Makes Us, which seeks to celebrate gender equality and the history-making achievements of our female Olympians.
Today is a significant day for women around the world, not least in the world of sport. Check out Team GB’s social media channels (@TeamGB for Facebook and Twitter and instagram.com/teamgb) to see how they’ll be honouring this special occasion.
Don’t miss Team GB’s 3-minute video of iconic female Olympians who have helped pave the way for the class of 2020. They will also post images of those female athletes we hope to see lighting up the Games this summer as part of the team with more female than male competitors.
