On the occasion of the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace, on April 6th, the International Olympic Committee reaffirms the vital role of sport in covid-19 recovery efforts

 

“Sport is ready to contribute to building a more human-centred and inclusive society,” said IOC President Thomas Bach. “This crisis has made it clearer than ever that sport is the low-cost, high-impact tool par excellence for all countries in their recovery efforts.”
