The Olympic Truce


The ancient Olympic Truce was revived for our modern times in 1993, and affirmed by the United Nations General Assembly to support the safe passage and participation around the Olympic Games for all concerned, from athletes to spectators.

It is the oldest recorded international agreement still in effect, established in 776 BC; also the most supported United Nations agreement in our history.

The International Olympic Truce Foundation, under the International Olympic Committee, advocates for faithfulness to the Olympic Truce by and between countries.
