KBC 14: Which word was added to ‘Faster, Higher, Stronger’, the official Olympic motto in English?
The International Olympic Committee had amended its “Faster, Higher, Stronger” motto to include the word ‘Together’, its President Thomas Bach said on Tuesday, highlighting the need for solidarity during difficult times such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We have to adapt the motto to our times,” he told a session meeting following the approval of an Olympic Charter amendment.
The motto now reads: “Faster, Higher, Stronger – Together”.
The original motto, the Latin ‘Citius, Altius, Fortius’, was adopted by the founder of the modern Games Pierre De Coubertin in the 19th century.
The Latin version will become ‘Citius, Altius, Fortius – Communis’.
