Aiming to motivate European citizens to engage in sports, European Commission organised #BeActive.

Held within the framework of 2017 European Sports Week, the contest invites citizens to share examples of their participation in sports on social media platforms until September 23. Each week, European Commission chooses a winner who has the opportunity to win sports related prizes.

Nikola Euripidou from Nicosia was the winner for the week August 14 —20, during which, she posted photographs and videos of her sporting activity on her Instagram account. A video was selected and awarded by the European Commission, in which Nikola, despite being injured, found a way to exercise.
