Message from IOC President Dr.Jacques Rogge


Known around the world, Juan Antonio Samaranch was one of those men who make their mark on their era, and whose influence is felt long after they have gone. It was thanks to his extraordinary vision and talent that the Olympic Movement became strong and unified, and his achievements will leave a legacy that will continue long into the future.

Among his many remarkable accomplishments, he will be long remembered for making possible the return of China within the Olympic family and thus for promoting the Olympic Movement and its values throughout the country and in particular among the young people. Juan Antonio Samaranch has always been a friend of China. He admired its rich history and culture, which has always fascinated the entire world.  Today, thanks to the Samaranch Foundation, his tremendous legacy will be preserved and perpetuated.
