Fair Play

Olympic Charter states: “The mission of the IOC is to promote Olympism through the world and to lead the Olympic Movement. The IOC’s role is to encourage and support [..] education of youth through sport and to dedicate its efforts to ensuring that, in sport, the spirit of fair play prevails and violence is banned.”

Fair Play values such as fair competition, respect, friendship, team spirit, equality, sport without doping, integrity, solidarity, tolerance, care, excellence and joy, are elements that must be part of the beautiful game. 

Pierre De Coubertin stated that “Olympism seeks to create a way of life based on the joy found in effort, the educational value of a good example and respect for universal fundamental ethical principles”. Latvian Olympians Club is trying to encourage society for creating good examples and respect not only in sports but also in everyday life.
