Kuwait Olympic Committee

Our Way Forward

Kuwait Olympic Committee is ready to usher in a new era and lead the Olympic Movement in Kuwait to a brighter and more prosperous future.

We will be positive and look forward as we aim to develop sport in Kuwait from grassroots to elite level; we will work together with all Government agencies as well as private and public sector to achieve our goals, and we will spread the Olympic values throughout the country.

We will build our future on three key pillars, which provide a strong foundation for all our current and future activities:

Teamwork – because only by working as a team we can realise our goals and we all recognise that TEAM means “Together Everybody Achieves More”.

Unity – because we know from experience that only when we are united we have the confidence and courage to achieve big results.

Solidarity – because we want to provide the best possible opportunities for everybody in sport and in our country by sharing resources and experience on all levels.

Teamwork, Unity and Solidarity – our three Key Pillars for our Five Rings
