Malaysia's National Cyclist Josiah Ng Joins Fellow Olympians On Airbnb For 5-Day Online Festival
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.
The festival looks to be a truly inspirational experience especially with the participation of our very own Olympic cyclist, Josiah Ng. He will host daily sessions throughout the festival where he will share the highs and lows of his 25-year career as a professional cyclist, along with his tips on winning at the highest level in sports and in life.
Other highlights include a talk by Syrian swimmer Yusra Mardini on July 26 and a beachside Zumba session with Brazilian pole vaulter Tom Hintnaus on July 27. The grand finale on July 29 will feature skateboarding legend Tony Hawk, Japanese basketball player Rui Hachimura and figure skater Ashley Wagner, among others.
