L’ importante è partecipare.
Sulle pendici del Bourget abbiamo riproposto, già da allora, il sentimento e lo spirito della missione Olimplica
MISSION OF THE INTERNATIONAL OLYMPIC COMMITTEE
The International Olympic Committee is the supreme authority of the Olympic Movement. Its role is to promote top-level sport as well as sport for all in accordance with the Olympic Charter. It ensures the regular celebration of the Olympic Games and strongly encourages, by appropriate means, the promotion of women in sport, that of sports ethics and the protection of athletes.
The IOC is composed of a maximum of 115 co-opted members (however until 31 December 2003, the total number of IOC members may reach 130) who meet in Session at least once a year. The Session elects a President for a term of eight years, renewable once for four years, and Executive Board members for terms of four years.
By retaining all rights relating to the organisation, marketing, broadcasting and reproduction of the Olympic Games, the IOC ensures the continuity of a unique and universal event.
The Olympic Movement receives most of its funding from the Olympic Games rights bought by broadcast networks. However, it also benefits from the Olympic Partners world-wide sponsorship programme (TOP) comprising multinational companies.
