Aged care centres on the Peninsula have jumped into the Olympic spirit with a range of events to help cheer on the Aussies competing in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics campaign.

Woy Woy-based BlueWave Living held its very own Torch Relay on July 23, and followed the schedule of the Aussie side, hosting events in synchronised swimming, table tennis and swimming.

A video of their relay can be found on BlueWave Living’s YouTube channel.

Residents from Peninsula Villages have also been embracing their inner Olympians.

They too took part in their own Torch Relay.

Starting on the top floor of Pozieres House, torchbearers Ian, Doreen, Margaret, Alan, Mary W, Mary M, Hazel, Sheila, and Bev carried the torch through each wing to the sound of cheering from staff and residents, until they reached reception where the torch was placed.

The torch will now make its way to the other facilities as the Games continue.
