Turkish international Olympics underway

This is the first we’re hearing about this but the ninth International Turkish Olympics opened on Wednesday at Istanbul’s Dolmabahçe Palace.

The annual competition is hosting children from 130 countries who will showcase their talents in Turkish music, dance and poetry while promoting peace according to Turkey’s speaker of Parliament.

Aiming to create intercultural dialogue based on the common ground of “humanity,” the Olympics will be held in 24 different cities around Turkey from June 15 to 30, with the participation of 1,000 contestants and 300 teachers from 130 countries.

The Olympic final will be held June 30 at the Sinan Erdem Dome in Istanbul’s Ataköy neighbourhood.
