“Distinguished guests, the Olympic spirit is above all a spirit of peace, symbolized in the famous Olympic truce. The Games of ancient Greece, were an opportunity, every four years, to help repair fragmented societies.”

Over 250 people attended the The Faith in Sport Royal Gala Dinner, including the president of Panama, the president of the Commonwealth of Dominica, the president of Montenegro and the Crown Prince of Tonga.
