The International Olympic Committee supports #NoHateNoFear initiative

“As the leader of the sporting world, the International Olympic Committee fully supports the #NoHateNoFear initiative because we know that only by standing together we can achieve a world free of terror, free of hate and free of fear,” said the President of the IOC, Thomas Bach, in a video statement made public today.

“In our fragile world, shaken by crisis and mistrust, we need the spirit of dialogue and cooperation more than ever before,” he added.

In his address to the Assembly during its last plenary session in October this year, the President of the IOC also stated that “we can only make progress by joining forces. The IOC is built on the belief that we can make the world a better place through sport. But we can only do so if we work together”.
