IOC launches “Sport. And More Than Sport” ahead of Paris 2024

AMTV, Lausanne, Jun 26 – Marking one month to go before the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games Paris 2024 on 26 July, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) launches “Sport. And More than Sport” – a new Olympic brand platform. It will debut with an uplifting short film that encapsulates the unique spirit and feeling of the Olympic Games, which will air globally across the Olympic Media Rights-Holder (MRH) network and Olympic digital platforms and will run throughout Paris 2024 and beyond.

“Sport. And More Than Sport” is a new brand platform for the Olympics that expresses the multi-dimensionality of the Olympic experience and everything sport and the Olympic Games bring to people both on and off the field of play. It embraces the magic of sport, but also sport’s meaning beyond performance – belonging and human connection, personal empowerment and growth, and opportunities and dreams. It aims to bring the Olympics close to the hearts and lives of people everywhere by celebrating the joy and entertainment of sport and the fan experience.

IOC President Thomas Bach said: “Sport is at the heart of the Olympic Games. But they are about so much more than that. They go beyond competition. They are about living the Olympic values, about feeling the emotions, about enjoying the opportunities, about sharing wonderful memories. This is the unique and enduring spirit of the Olympic Games that we are about to witness at Paris 2024, and beyond”.

“Sport. And More Than Sport” launches with a short film , starting on the streets of Paris, where the Games of the XXXIII Olympiad will begin next month. It follows the Olympic spirit – represented by a magical, invisible force travelling around the world, connecting with people of all ages and backgrounds, and inspiring in them a wide range of emotions. It features Olympic legend Nadia Comaneci – the first gymnast to be awarded a perfect score at an Olympic Games – together with everyday athletes, highlighting the universality of the Olympic spirit and its ability to touch the lives of all people.

The short film is available to watch on and social media handles @olympics #morethansport. It will air globally across the Olympic MRH network, and will be showcased at the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games Paris 2024 on 26 July.

“Sport. And More Than Sport” will run through Paris 2024 and beyond.
