Tokyo Olympics Motto

  • The Olympic motto was amended to “faster, higher, stronger – together” during the International Olympic Committee’s session which held recently, as the world waited for the pandemic-hit Tokyo Games to begin on July 23, 2021.
  • The word “together” after a hyphen has been added to the earlier motto, which was made up of three Latin words — Citius, Altius, Fortius, translating to “Faster Higher Stronger” in English. The proposal to include the word together was made by IOC President Thomas Bach, which was endorsed by the body’s Executive Board (EB). The motto now reads ‘Citius, Altius, Fortius – Communis’ in Latin.
