The Olympic creed came from a quote by Pierre de Coubertin, founder of the modern Olympic Games: “The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well.”

The Olympic motto consists of the three Latin words “Citius, Altius, Fortius,” meaning faster, higher, stronger.
