Olympics are a celebration of friendship, unity and peace. The goal of the Olympic Movement is to contribute to building a peaceful and better world by educating youth through sport practiced without discrimination of any kind and in the Olympic spirit, which requires mutual understanding with a spirit of friendship, solidarity and fair play. The Olympic spirit is linked to the values and ideals of Olympism.
