The vice president of International Olympic Committee Juan Antonio Samaranch Jr: “We think that the Olympic ideals are current and good and valuable to all generations. We cannot all practice sport and physical activity in the same way, but Olympic is about being active and respecting people.” One of the cores of the Olympics is education, and influencing people’s behavior through the example of champions is a true reflection of the Olympic educational dream.
