17 May 2023
On this day 40 years ago, a group of students came together with a common idea, a common goal! On May 17, 1983 the foundation of the National Olympic Academy of Bulgaria was given! Today, the people who founded the NOA Bulgaria so many years ago, who created so much joy, emotion and most of all inspiration are together again and continue to give their all for the children of Bulgaria.  National Olympic Academy of BOC is one of the oldest Olympic Academies in the world, but more importantly it is one of the academies with the most sustainable development and consistency. This is all due to the tremendous work of the volunteers who have become part of this idea all these years. Let us be proud of our 100 year old Olympic Committee and 40 year old Olympic Academy, because the culture we carry no one can take from us, because the spirit we are filled with no one can take from us, because no one can take away the strength we possess as heirs of great Bulgarians. Olympism will always be part of us and our deeds, that is why Bulgaria will always have worthy people to build the foundations of the future! Happy holiday friends!
