“Baron Pierre de Coubertin’s idea of an international athletics competition was not for its own sake, but to promote the values which he saw in the ancient Games: peace and understanding between nations.”

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.

“They can show us again, in every athlete,how much can be achieved in life with self discipline, concentrated effort and healthy competition.”
