The well-known motto of the Olympic Games, "Citius, Altius, Fortius" is Latin for "Faster, Higher, Braver". However, this phrase is most universally recognized in English as "Swifter, Higher, Stronger". 广为人知的奥林匹克格言"Citius, Altius, Fortius"是拉丁语“更快、更高、更勇敢”的意思。但是,这个短语在英语中更为人们公认的意思是“更快、更高、更强”。

The spirit of the modern Olympic Games is embodied in the Olympic Motto "Citius, Altius, Fortius", Latin for "Faster, Higher, Braver" and the modern interpretation as "Swifter, Higher, Stronger". 现代奥运会的精神体现在拉丁语的奥林匹克格言"Citius, Altius, Fortius" 中,它的含义是“更快,更高,更勇敢”,目前更为普遍的译法是“更快,更高,更强”。

In 1886, in the early days of the modern Olympics, the abbot Father Didon, a Dominican priest and school teacher, used these words to describe the great achievements of the athletes at his school.


These three words were taken up with enthusiasm by de Coubertin and became the official Olympic Motto later, expressing the athlete's ambition to run faster, jump higher, and throw more strongly.


According to the Olympic Charter, the Olympic Motto expresses the message which the IOC addresses to all who belong to the Olympic Movement, inviting them to excel in accordance with the Olympic Spirit.


The Olympic Motto has been inspiring modern Olympians since its introduction at the 1920 Games. But these words should not be understood

simplistically as a call for unfettered improvement of man's physical performances, but rather as urging man to surpass himself in the very essence of his very being.



The Olympic Motto supposes the progress of human capacity on the basis of mental and physical improvement of man's natural qualities.


Outside the entrance to the Olympic Museum in Lausanne(Switzerland), the three symbols are brought together to welcome visitors from the whole world:

-The Olympic flag, decorated with five rings, flutters at the top of a flagpole.

-The motto is engraved on a cauldron.

-A fire burns in the cauldron, as a reminder of the Olympic flame. 在瑞士洛桑奥林匹克博物馆的入口外,奥林匹克运动的三个标志聚集在一起,欢迎着世界各地的来访者:




The sense of the Olympic Motto is that being first is not necessarily a priority, but that giving one's best and striving for personal excellence is a worthwhile goal.


The Olympic Motto can not only apply to the individual athlete who makes great achievements in his or her chosen field, but also apply to sports bodies, clubs, organizations and even states committed to the philosophy of modern Olympics.

奥林匹克格言不仅适用于那些在各自领域内取得巨大成就的运动员,也同样适用于那些奉行现代奥林匹克宗旨的体育团体、俱乐部、组织甚至国家。 In a way, the IOC has a second motto, which is called the Olympic Creed.

在某种程度上,国际奥委会还有第二条格言,被成为奥林匹克信条。 Pierre de Coubertin got the creed from a speech given by Bishop Ethelbert Talbot at a service for Olympic champions during the 1908 Olympic Games.


The Olympic Creed reads: "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 Creed and Motto are meant to spur the athletes to embrace the Olympic Spirit and perform to the best of their abilities.


In 1948 London Games, the Olympic Creed first appeared on the scoreboard. Since then, it has appeared on the scoreboard during the Opening Ceremony at every modern Olympic Games.



The Olympic Motto first appeared officially in 1920 Antwerp Games. 奥林匹克格言在1920年安特卫普奥运会上正式出现

"Spirit in Motion" is the new Paralympic Motto, expressing the inspirational character of the Paralympic Movement as well as elite performance of Paralympic athletes.


The new Paralympic Motto also stands for the strong will of every Paralympian.


The word "Spirit" implies that IPC(International Paralympic

Committee) is not limited to only stage high sport performance, but that there is a strong message behind the Movement.


On the other hand, "Motion" of the Paralympic Motto implies that the IPC is an organization on the move.


The Olympic Charter is the official constitution of the Olympic Movement. It contains the Fundamental Principles, Rules and Bylaws adopted by the International Olympic Committee.


The Olympic Charter governs the organization and running of the Olympic Movement and sets the conditions for the celebration of the Olympic Games.
