His Highness: Opportunity to participate in Paris Olympics will inspire UAE athletes to achieve outstanding results


His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Second Deputy Ruler of Dubai and President of the National Olympic Committee, today said that the UAE’s commitment to advancing the goals and initiatives of the Olympic Movement reflects the vital role that sports play in the country’s society. This dedication also signifies the resolve of the UAE’s leaders to actively support and contribute to the success of Olympic endeavours, he said.

Commenting on the occasion of Olympic Day, which was marked in Dubai today, he said that the values and principles cultivated through participating in sports represent the true essence of the Olympic movement. Participation in sporting events not only enhances athletes' performance but also reinforces the ideals of sportsmanship, fair play, and unity. These are the fundamental goals of sports, driving excellence and fostering a sense of brotherhood among athletes worldwide, he further said.

The Olympic Day, which is celebrated annually in collaboration with National Olympic Committees worldwide, commemorates the founding of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) on 23 June 1894. The theme of this year’s Olympic Day is 'Let's Move and Celebrate'.

"The UAE NOC is proud to participate in Olympic Day events in coordination with the IOC. The IOC's logo, the iconic colors of its five rings, and the Paris Olympics logo were displayed on the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, one of the UAE's and the world's most renowned landmarks, for the second consecutive year,” said His Highness. “We take pride in participating in the event held just weeks before the Paris Olympic Games, which promotes movement, health, and fitness,” he added.

Highlighting the importance of the UAE team's participation in the Paris Olympics next month, His Highness noted that the opportunity to participate in the prestigious global sporting event will inspire the athletes to achieve outstanding results and make the country proud.
