NNN: Sport is a formidable meeting tool that awakens all kinds of emotions and passions. These are normal human feelings that must remain so in all the purity inherited from nature. Sport involves the entire body of an individual, whatever their race, size, sex, complexion, appearance, appetite, tastes, pleasures, etc.

Sport far transcends negative values ​​and extinguishes all dark shades of evil. Sport only transmits positive vibes. This power emanates from his very essence.

This is the first thing that must be universally understood and retained before attempting to explain all the rules that have entangled Sport through the action of men like us.

This action has become more serene and credible since the visionary legacy of Pierre De Coubertin bequeathed to posterity an Olympic Movement that we now have a great responsibility to perfect.

Close to perfection? Yes, why not? We have the means through the power of sport to get closer to perfection. On this exceptional day of June 23, 2022, when we celebrate Olympism, it is enough for us to understand that Sport for Peace must be our common cause.

Dialogue is an intrinsic part of Sport and therefore must be promoted to establish and maintain peace.

Many crises divide people and sadden nations. We need to unite more people to make our planet a haven of peace, and Sport is an excellent vehicle for this.

Every crisis must be resolved through dialogue, hand in hand, in consensus and fair play, as in a sports competition where healthy competition is made for true and sustainable development.

In Africa, the Association of National Olympic Committees of Africa, ANOCA, has always cherished the Olympic values ​​of solidarity, love, sharing and fair play, all for peace.

In the past we have contributed our share to sport and we still participate in all major sporting events. We were at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, then at the Beijing 2022 Winter Games, and we will go to Paris for the 2024 Olympic Games. The most important thing will be not only to participate, but to raise the white flag of PEACE next to the flame olympic

In this concert of nations, Africa wants to run at the same pace as all the continents in the permanent search for peace through all the sports disciplines that exist and that are the pride of the Olympic movement.

The moments of competition are the right occasions to silence everything that knocks us down; For example, with Sport we resist and counteract the pernicious Covid-19 pandemic.

The International Olympic Committee and President Thomas BACH have shown the way forward.

It is the path of resilience and concerted efforts to avoid all adversity. This has been possible thanks to Sport and will continue to be so because the Power of Sport is the Power of Peace.

Together for a Better Life. Respectfully, Mustapha Berraf IOC Member President of ANOCA
