"Education and Sport through school is crucial for the wellbeing and empowerment of youth, contributing to the development of their leadership skills. We must provide the youth with equal opportunities, which begins in school and can only be achieved through proper education and includes sport," said Laurent Petrynka, ISF President and IOC Olympic Education Commission Member.
