The International Olympic Academy announces the continuation of the cooperation with the Stoiximan, the biggest company of online betting in Greece, contributing to the realization of the action plan for the diffusion of the Olympic Movement for one more year.
The cooperation with the International Olympic Academy is part of the plan to reinforce the Greek sport by the Stoiximan, which realized an expanded program to support the athletes in their effort to excel at the Olympic Games of Rio. Now, the support continues with a view to the Olympic Games of Tokyo 2020.
The International Olympic Academy, since its foundation in 1961, is the most important institution for the development and the propagation of the Olympic Movement. It takes initiatives for the preservation of the values of Olympism and the diffusion of its philosophy through educational and edifying actions while it hosts international sessions related to peace, international relations, humanitarian law and other scientific subjects through the prism of Olympism’s impact in the contemporary world.
Ioannis Spanoudakis, Board Member of Stoiximan, underlined regarding the renewal of the cooperation:
“It is a great honour for Stoiximan to continue for a second year this cooperation, contributing to the valuable work that the IOA has been undertaking during the last 56 years, to communicate with consistency and to expand the contribution of Olympism to the humanity.
With our support to the IOA, we seal our commitment to fortify all aspects of the sport ideals. We share the high, topical values of Olympism and we believe that, especially these days, there is a great need for their global appeal and application.”
From his side, Michael Fysentzidis, President of the International Olympic Academy, noted:
“Preserving the historic responsibility for promoting the philosophy that reflects the basic values of Olympism, Greece remains a country that insists in diffusing the meaning of the Olympic Movement. Greece cooperates, speaks with and joins forces for the preservation and the diffusion of the Olympic Movement worldwide. And the International Olympic Academy is a strong shareholder of this mission with an active role. We would like to thank Stoiximan that is assisting us in this effort”.
The practical cooperation for such efforts that exalt values like mutual respect, justice, equity, sporting excellence, peaceful internationalism as well as the principles that pay tribute to the human ideals, will allow the vision of the Olympic Movement to continue to express itself and to thrive.
