As we get excited about the upcoming Olympiad, let’s look back at the previous two iconic events in Beijing and London.  



Dulwich Olympiad 2015

The first Dulwich Olympiad took place in the vibrant city of Beijing in April 2015, where over 500 students from 8 schools converged beneath the iconic skyline for the inaugural Dulwich Olympiad. Events took place in iconic venues within the historical city, including the National Olympic Sports Centre. 



  • Athletics, Football, Basketball and Swimming were held at the National Olympic Sports Centre Basketball stadium, constructed for the 1990 Asian Games. Three courts in the stadium saw participation from all participating Colleges in at least one of the age groups.
