The control and development of the modern Olympic Games was entrusted to the International Olympic Committee by a Congress held in Paris on the 23rd June 1894. The International Olympic Committee is a body corporated by International Law, having juridical status and perpetual succession with headquarters in Laussanne, Switzerland. The Committee is not formed for gain or profit, and at this stage I may mention the chief aims of the Organisation, namely:

The main function of a National Olympic Committee is to ensure the representation of sportsmen and women from its country at the Olympic Games, but it is also encumbent con the Organisation to ensure the protection and the development of the Olympic Movement and amateur sports, and thus:

  1. Teach and encourage respect of the fundamental principles of Olympism.
  2. Act as a link with National Sports Federations affiliated to the International
  3. Federations recognized by the International Olympic Committee.
  4. Encourage and assist the Government of its country in the enforcement of a Sport Programme for the youth, with a view to developing its character, health and civic sense.
  5. Oppose any political or commercial interference and any religious or racial discrimination in Sport.
  6. Propagate a programme meant to enlighten the public and the media on Olympic Philosophy.

International Federations are the Organizations responsible for their respective Sports on a global basis. The International Federations have as affiliates the National Sporting Associations, who in turn have the clubs as its affiliates.

The National Olympic Committee (NOC) propagate the fundamental principles of Olympism at national level within the framework of sports activity and otherwise contribute, among other things, to the diffusion of Olympism in the teaching programmes of physical education and sport in schools and university establishments.

International Federations are the Organizations responsible for their respective Sports on a global basis. The International Federations have as affiliates the National Sporting Associations, who in turn have the clubs as its affiliates.
