  4. 4. 4. The aims of the Olympic Movement are to promote the development of those fine physical and moral qualities that come from contests on the friendly fields of amateur sport and to bring together the youth of the world in a great quadrennial sport festival, thereby creating international respect and goodwill, and helping to construct a better and more peaceful world. (Olympic Charter, 1958:9)
  5. 5. What is Fair Play if it is not dignity and self-respect? Human dignity as it is defined in the Charter of Human Rights. Each one of us, every person on this Earth, possesses this dignity, not acquired at the price of some achievement, but naturally inherent to mankind. It exists independently of social rank, position or wealth. It cannot cease to exist, but must constantly re-assert itself . (Juan Antonio Samaranch in IOC 88th Session, 1984:40)
  6. 6. 8 - The practice of sport is a human right. Every individual must have the possibility of practising sport in accordance with his or her needs. (Olympic Charter, 1996:9)
