IMG Olympics

Event date: 
Fri, 04/26/2024 - 3:30pm to 5:30pm

Another four years have gone by, and the Summer Olympics are back to recognize the world’s best athletes while simultaneously wreaking havoc on its host city’s infrastructure. Since most of us probably can’t afford a trip to Croissant City to watch the games in person, we decided to bring the Olympics here! This year, we will have the IMG Spring Olympics, a fun-filled afternoon for IMG members to unwind and engage in some friendly competition. The event will be held on Friday, 4/26 @ 3:30 pm at the SW Rec Softball Fields.
