“Olympism is a philosophy of life, exalting and combining in a balance whole the qualities of body, will and mind. Blending sport with culture and education, Olympism seeks to create a way of life based on the joy found in effort, the educational value of good example and respect for universal fundamental ethical principles.” -The International Olympic Committee
