  • 15. Creed & Motto
  • 16. Creed & Motto
  • 17. Creed & MottoIn 1921, Pierre de Coubertin, founder of the modern Olympic Games, borrowed a Latin phrasefrom his friend, Father Henri Didon, for the Olympic motto: Citius, Altius, Fortius ("Swifter,Higher, Stronger").Pierre de Coubertin got the idea for this phrase from a speech given by Bishop Ethelbert Talbotat a service for Olympic champions during the 1908 Olympic Games. The Olympic Creed reads:"The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the mostimportant thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to haveconquered but to have fought well."FACTS:When choosing locations for the Olympic Games, the IOC specifically gives the honor ofholding the Games to a city rather than a country.James B. Connolly (United States), winner of the hop, step, and jump (the first final event in the1896 Olympics), was the first Olympic champion of the modern Olympic Games.
