Committee for the promotion of physical exercise

Throughout his career and his enterprises (whether or not they were achieved), the number of organisations that Pierre de Coubertin created, established and headed is remarkable because, far from focusing solely on simple intellectual constructs, perhaps the most remarkable thing about him was that he worked ceaselessly to ensure that they became a reality. Coubertin entered the public area in November 1886 with his first articles and conferences. On 29th May 1888, he officially announced the creation of the Committee for the promotion of physical exercise in education, chaired by Jules Simon, the renowned former minister for public education, although Coubertin was the linchpin. In June 1889, on the occasion of the Universal Exposition in Paris, he was the instigator of an international congress for the promotion of physical exercise, maintaining his steadfast faith in the future.More information: coubertin.org.Photo: Pierre de Coubertin (International Pierre de Coubertin Committee).
