Olympic Charter

The Olympic Charter is a constitution of the Olympic Movement supported by the Bahrain Olympic Committee since its inception on June 23, 1894. The Olympic Charter includes the fundamental principles of the Olympic Games, as well as the rules and statute adopted by the International Olympic Committee in defining the rights and obligations of the three Olympic movement components, namely the International Olympic Committee, the International Federations and National Olympic Committees.
