The International Olympic Committee (IOC) is a not-for-profit independent international organisation that is committed to building a better world through sport. Created on 23 June 1894, just under two years before the first Olympic Games of the modern era in April 1896, the IOC is the supreme authority of the Olympic Movement.
As the leader of the Olympic Movement, the IOC acts as a catalyst for collaboration between all parties of the Olympic family, from the National Olympic Committees, the International Federations, the athletes and the Organising Committees for the Olympic Games to the Worldwide Olympic Partners, broadcast partners and United Nations (UN) agencies, and shepherds success through a wide range of programmes and projects. On this basis, it ensures the regular celebration of the Olympic Games, supports all affiliated member organisations of the Olympic Movement and strongly encourages, by appropriate means, the promotion of the Olympic values.
The ITA has been managing the entire Olympic anti-doping program since 2018. Below you can find the current, future and past editions of Olympic events that the ITA is keeping real.
According to its Organising Committee, Paris 2024 will see a new vision of Olympism in action, delivered in a unique spirit of international celebration.
One of the world’s most inspirational cities will become a memorable stage for the athletes – and a truly global platform to promote them, and their incredible stories.
The plan for Paris 2024 features 95 per cent existing or temporary venues, and every single one has a clear, defined legacy aligned with the city’s long-term development plans. The sporting celebration will flow along the Seine, from the new Olympic Village, just 15 minutes from Paris city centre, to such city centre landmarks as the Eiffel Tower and the Grand Palais. The event will take place in July/August 2024.
