Coubertin 365

Coubertin Speaks is dedicated to presenting a daily jolt of inspiration from the writings of Baron Pierre de Coubertin, the long forgotten French genius of sport who founded the modern Olympic Games. Every day—at least for the 365 days of 2018—we are posting a direct quote from the literary legacy of this great humanitarian. His idealistic vision of uniting the world in friendship and peace through sport is manifest on a global scale in every edition of the Games—and it is expressed here in smaller bites from the pages of his oeuvre.
