A motto is a phrase which sums up a life philosophy or a code of conduct to follow.

The Olympic motto is made up of three Latin words: "Citius, Altius, Fortius", which means "Faster, Higher, Stronger".

These three words encourage the athlete to give his or her best during competition, and to view this effort as a victory in itself.

The sense of the 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. It can apply equally to athletes and to each one of us.

History The three Latin words became the Olympic motto in 1894, the date of the IOC's creation. Pierre de Coubertin proposed the motto, having borrowed it from his friend Henri Didon, a Dominican priest who taught sport to students.


To better understand the motto, we can compare it with the following well-known phrase:

The most important thing is not to win but to take part! This idea was developed by Pierre de Coubertin who had been inspired by a sermon given by the Bishop of Pennsylvania, Ethelbert Talbot, during the Games of London in 1908.

  奥林匹克格言(Olympic Motto)亦称奥林匹克口号。奥林匹克运动有一句著名的格言: “更快、更高、更强。”这一格言是顾拜旦的好友、巴黎阿奎埃尔修道院院长迪东(Henri Didon)在他的学生举行的一次户外运动会上,鼓励学生们时说过的一句话, 他说:“在这里,你们的口号是:更快、更高、更强。”

  顾拜旦借用过来,将这句话用于奥林匹克运动。1920年国际奥委会将其正式确认为奥林匹克格言,在安特卫普奥运会上首次使用。此后,奥林匹克格言“Citius,Altius,Fortius”出现在国际奥委会的各种出版物上。奥林匹克格言充分表达了奥林匹克运动所倡导的不断进取、永不满足的奋斗精神。虽然只有短短的6个字,但其含义却非常丰富,它不仅表示在竞技运动中要不畏强手,敢于斗争,敢于胜利,而且鼓励人们在自己的生活和工作中不甘于平庸,要朝气蓬勃,永远进取,超越自我,将自己的潜能发挥到极限。
