Partnerships in Sports
The Abhinav Bindra Foundation (ABFT), in partnership with the Olympic Studies Center, German Sports University, Cologne has launched its educative monthly webinar series ‘Olympism and its values’. GITAM (Deemed to be University) is a proud Education Partner in this initiative for promotion of Olympism in India.
The recently concluded Tokyo Olympics 2020 an Paralympics 2020 ended up being the most successful for India in over a hundred years of its participation in the Games. However, as admirers of sport and the many qualities we derive through it, what made this journey truly special was the way the athletes showed respect for moral principles even in the face of competition, serving as true ambassadors of the Olympic values whether in victory or defeat. These values are the true legacy of the games for the whole society. As a country, we must come forward to embrace the values of Friendship, Respect and Excellence in our daily life, taking our learnings from the Tokyo Olympics.
The monthly series will see prominent thought leaders and experienced academicians from all over the world talk about the various ways through which the world can adopt the values of Olympism and how sports can address sustainable development goals.
