WHAT IS THE OLYMPIC CREED ?
“The 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 spoke this phrase at a reception given by the British government on 24 July 1908. It went on to become the Olympic Movement’s creed.
