www.olympic.orgOLYMPIC REVIEW7PRESIDENT ROGGE FOREWORDIn a little more than a year from now, the world'sbest athletes will gather in London for the Gamesof the XXX Olympiad. They are an elite group. Mosthave trained for years, with single-minded dedication,to reach the pinnacle of sport. Competing in theOlympic Movement's premier event is out of reach formost people, but there is another Olympic event that is open to anyone who wants to join a globalcelebration of sport and Olympic values. Olympic Day is a chance for people of all ages andall abilities to experience some of the magic of theOlympic Games in their own communities. Last year,more than four million people took advantage of theopportunity to "move, learn and discover" at OlympicDay events in countries around the world. The celebration officially falls on 23 June, to markthe birth of the modern Olympic Movement on 23June 1894, and it is a fitting way to commemoratethat historic event. Our Movement was founded on afundamental belief in the positive power of sport -for society and for individuals.Our goal has always been to share the benefits ofsport and Olympic values with as many people aspossible. Olympic Day is an important part of thateffort, but many other projects serve a similar purpose.Olympic Day is one of several initiatives under thejurisdiction of the IOC's Sport for All Commission.The International Olympic Committee establishedthe commission in 1983 to advance the Olympic idealthat sport is a human right for all, regardless of race,gender or social class. The commission encouragesand supports initiatives at the grassroots level thatpromote health, education and personal developmentthrough sport.The Sport for All also hosts conferences and otherevents that provide an opportunity for educators,government representatives, NGOs and sports expertsto share ideas and form partnerships to share thebenefits of sport more widely. The 14th WorldConference on Sport for All will be held in Beijing,China, in September.The IOC's Olympic Solidarity programme alsosupports grassroots sport. The innovative Olympafricaproject has helped African National OlympicCommittees build more than two dozen communitycentres that combine physical activities with educationalprogrammes and other community services.The IOC's Sport for Hope project took that conceptto another level in May 2010, with the opening of anew Youth Olympic Development Centre in Lusaka,Zambia. This versatile multi-use facility is acollaborative effort by the IOC, the Government ofZambia, the Zambian National Olympic Committee andsix International and National Federations. We are nowworking on a similar project for Haiti.We are reaching even more young people throughour Olympic Values Education Programme. The IndianOlympic Association has launched an ambitious projectto bring Olympic values education to 20 percent of India's population. The common thread of all of these efforts is thatthey promote sport and Olympic values in ways thattouch the lives of people who may never get a chanceto compete at the Olympic Games. The Games will always be our premier event. Theybring Olympic values to life before a global audienceand inspire millions of people. But our mission ofplacing sport at the service of humanity requires thatwe share the benefits of sport as widely as possible. ?FOREWORDBY JACQUESROGGEPRESIDENT, INTERNATIONAL OLYMPIC COMMITTEE
