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.”

Please, also see the IOC article on the 125th anniversary of the first Olympic Games of the modern era, in Athens, which opened on 6 April 1896, here .

“We are celebrating this anniversary at a time when the Olympic values of excellence, friendship, respect and solidarity are more relevant than ever,” said IOC President Thomas Bach.
