Sport DictionaryNo Dictionary Found
The Olympic Oath is taken by an athlete and a judge at the opening ceremonies of the Olympic Games.

The athlete, from team of the organising country, holds a corner of the Olympic Flag while speaking the oath:

In the name of all competitors, I promise that we shall take part in these Olympic Games, respecting and abiding by the rules that govern them, in the true spirit of sportsmanship, for the glory of sport and the honor of our teams, committing ourselves to a sport without doping and without drugs.
The judge, also from the home nation, does the same, but with a slighly different oath:

In the name of all the judges and officials, I promise that we shall officiate in these Olympic Games with complete impartiality, respecting and abiding by the rules which govern them in the true spirit of sportsmanship.
