WHAT IS THE OLYMPIC BELIEF?
“The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to participate, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph, but the fight. The essential thing is not to have won, but to have fought well "
Inspired by the words of the bishop of Pennsylvania, Ethelbert Talbot, Pierre de Coubertin first uttered this phrase at a reception given by the British government on July 24, 1908. These words have become the creed of the Olympic Movement.
