International Day of Sport for Development and Peace on April 6th
Promoting health and community through athletic competitions

Lübbecke – 127 years ago, on April 6th, the first modern Olympic Summer Games were broadcast in Athens. Since then, the competitions and the Olympic flame have symbolized peace and solidarity between peoples. Anyone who is active in sports knows that exercise is not only good for the body, but also strengthens community and cohesion. This is how a football team falls into each other’s arms after a win and builds up again after a loss. But individual sports also offer the opportunity to grow internally. Athletes such as track and field athletes or marathon runners learn how to deal fairly and considerately with their competitors through competitions.

This is exactly what the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace is all about – based on the memory of the 1896 Olympics. The focus on this day is on health, community and the promotion of sport in all social classes. When raising children and young people, values ​​such as fairness, friendship and solidarity can be conveyed above all through participation in a wide variety of sports disciplines. Adults also strengthen their team spirit through sporting competitions. A good example of this is the relay race.
