‘OVEP combines the twin powers of education, sport’

MUMBAI, May 24: Member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), Nita Ambani has lauded the launch of India’s first ‘Olympic Values Education Programme’ (OVEP) in Odisha on Tuesday, emphasising that the programme combines the twin powers of education and sport in instilling the core values of Olympism.
The OVEP, launched by the IOC, is a set of resources designed by the IOC to introduce young people to the Olympic values of excellence, respect and friendship. The programme aims to disseminate values-based curriculum to help children become active, healthy and responsible citizens. A landmark initiative in India’s Olympic movement, the launch of OVEP comes as a build-up to the prestigious IOC 2023 Session.
Earlier this year, Nita Ambani led a delegation for India’s bid to host the IOC Session in 2023, where India was near-unanimously awarded the rights after a gap of 40 years. (IANS)
