Photographs, film extracts and other documents tell the story of those whose resilience gave rise to new hope and confidence in the future. These archives resonate with the stories of today’s athletes, affected by the postponement of the Tokyo 2020 Games and involved in one way or another in combatting the virus.
The exhibition also encourages visitors to share their own experience and contribute to the #StayStrong #StayActive #StayHealthy #OlympicMuseum digital campaign.
While the introduction of the Olympic flag was particularly significant in the context of those post-war Games, the symbolism of this flag is still as strong today. Because it is only by “standing in solidarity, united under the same flag” that we can work together towards the same goal: helping to build a better world through sport.
