Mongolian National Olympic Committee (MNOC) President Demchigjav Zagdsuren has welcomed a delegation from Arkhangai Province’s "Mexico City 1968" Olympic Council to Olympic House in Ulaanbaatar, marking the 49th anniversary of the Opening Ceremony of the Games.
The MNOC has named its provinces after Olympic host cities to celebrate the history and legacy of the Games.
A delegation led by Ts. Nerguibaatar visited MNOC headquarters.
Mongolia won four wrestling medals at the Games, including their first-ever silver, thanks to Jigjidiin Mönkhbat’s performance in the 87 kilograms freestyle category.
Chimedbazaryn Damdinsharav, Danzandarjaagiin Sereeter and Tömöriin Artag claimed bronze medals at 52kg, 70kg and 78kg respectively.
In July, the MNOC celebrated Olympic Day with a host of activities for local young people.
Held at the Burte Chono Plaza in front of the MNOC's headquarters, events were planned throughout the day with the cooperation of the National Sports Federations of karate, football, volleyball, badminton, baseball and softball, table tennis and athletics.
Olympic Day is dedicated to the founding of the international Olympic Movement by Pierre de Coubertin on June 23, 1894.
It aims to spread the ideals of the Olympic Movement and promote participation in sport across the globe regardless of age, gender or athletic ability.
Guests in attendance at the celebrations included Zagdsuren, Olympic medallists, Government representatives, foreign ambassadors and foreign embassy cultural representatives.
