Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 go under a new motto.
The IOC Session approved a change in the Olympic motto that recognises the unifying power of sport and the importance of solidarity. The historic change (that has never before been updated) adds the word “together” after an en dash to “Faster, Higher, Stronger”. The new Olympic motto now reads: “Faster, Higher, Stronger – Together”.
“Our Olympic community learned that we can address the many big challenges of our times only if we stand together.
The lesson we learned is: We need more solidarity. More solidarity among societies and more solidarity within societies.
Solidarity means much more than just respect or non-discrimination.
Solidarity means helping. Sharing. Caring.” – emphasized IOC President Thomas Bach during the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 today, 23 July 2021.
The 2020 Summer Olympic Games take place between 23 July and 8 August.
The Paralympic Games are due to run between 24 August and 5 September.
