The Olympic and Paralympic Games

The Olympic and Paralympic Games are about much more than sporting excellence. Underpinning the Games is the philosophy of Pierre de Coubertin, the founder of the Modern Olympic Movement. He saw in the Games an ideal opportunity to develop a set of universal principles - or Values - that could be applied to education and to society as a whole, as well as to sport itself.

 

These values are:-

P - Personal excellence

R - Respect and friendship

I - Inspiration

D - Determination and courage

E - Equality
