The Olympic Games

Pierre De Coubertin – (Paris, 1863 – Geneva, 1937)

The first modern Olympic Games took place in Athens in 1896. Pierre de Coubertin headed the International Olympic Committee from its creation in 1894 to 1925. Perceiving them to be central to any individual's development, he fostered sports and physical activity as a way to strengthen the mind.

The Rings

« The Olympic flag is completely white, with five intertwined rings: blue, yellow, black, green and red. As such, it symbolizes the five parts of the world united by the Olympic sprit and its six colours summarize those of all the national flags currently floating around the world. »

Pierre de Coubertin 1931

The motto: « Citius - Altius – Fortius” Faster - Higher - Stronger

Those three Latin words became the motto of the Olympic spirit in 1894. They were suggested by Pierre De Coubertin, who himself borrowed them from his friend Henri Didon, a Dominican priest who taught sports to his pupils. To give the best of oneself. To consider this elevation as a victory. To demand the best of oneself. Being first should not necessarily be the priority. “The important thing is not winning but taking part.”

The flame

A precise ritual follows the flame from its lighting to its extinction. The flame is lit in Olympia, Greece and then relayed all the way to the hosting city. Every participant carries the Olympic torch over a short distance and entrusts it to another. The relaying ends at the opening ceremony of the games. The last carrier – who is generally a champion from the hosting nation – lights the Olympic flame with his torch. The Olympic flame in turn burns throughout the games and is extinguished at their conclusion.


The Olympic Games

Jacques Rogge - Born 1942, Belgium -

Elected on July 16, 2001 as the eight president of the IOC.

The non-governmental International Olympics Committee (IOC) is the founder and supreme authority of the Olympic movement.

"Olympism is a philosophy of life, one that promotes and combines in a balanced manner the qualities of the body, of the will and of the mind. By associating sports, culture and education, the Olympic spirit promotes a lifestyle built on joy through effort, educating by example and respect for universal ehtical principles.” – as stated in the Olympic Chart 2004, Fundamental Principles 1 »

The challenge

AFRICA 2020/4

The Challenge

  • Africa and all Africans must take an active part in meeting this challenge.

  • To this end:

  • They will support a positive dynamic for African Olympics around the world.

  • They will support the legitimacy of this claim.

  • They will come forward with projects for hosting the Olympic Games.

  • They will bring together the youth, as well as men and women around this event. They will express their best creativity in making this event a unique one

  • They will federate their political, economic and social forces to reach the goal.

  • They will encourage and support the participation of African athletes.

Miracle Africa &NewSporAfrica wants to help Africa bring the Olympic Games to Africa.

To this end:

We aim to enlist the active support of men and women in the world. We aim to help African nations present ambitious yet realistic applications.We aim to drive a global fund raising drive.We aim to support attribution of the Olympic Games on a rotating basis.

The International Olympic Committee will receive an African application to host the Olympic Games.

This is a challenge:

Because the IOC has not granted the Games to Africa since 1896.

Because granting the Games to Africa would give the 5 rings all their meaning.Because it fits the values of Universality and Peace dear to Pierre De Coubertin

Because it meets a just need for rotation between the Northern and Southern Hemisphere. Because it places Human Values first, ahead of economic interests.

a Call, a Dream and a Hope

  • What could be more magical, universal and exceptional?

  • Millions of people have witnessed such scenes since the creation of the modern Olympic Games in 1896. A great long list of athletes, of hosting nations, all engaged in the competition, in the suffering and joy, all for the magic of the Olympics.

  • Indeed, universality, excellence, peace and openness to others are paramount values of Olympism.Why then should Africa not host the Olympic Games?
