The festival features more than 100 Olympians and Paralympians who will be sharing various facets of their lives

In light of the cancellation of Summer Olympics this year, Airbnb is hosting 5-day festival from July 24 - 29 in collaboration with International Olympic Committee and the International Paralympic Committee for slew of online experiences with Olympians. "Guests will be able to connect and interact with some of the most elite competitors within the Olympic and Paralympic movement, giving them even more reasons to cheer them on next year," says Airbnb co-founder Joe Gebbia.

While some of these sessions are one-off such as "Work Out with Naomi Osaka", which happens on July 28 at 7pm, other sessions are recurring such as Simidele Adeagbo's talk on reinvention, with new sessions being  released even after the festival ends.
