"The Olympic movement encourages in young athletes the spirit of universal understanding and respect, promotes hu-manism and advances the cause of peace. The Olympic movement brings to light and develops all that is best and most noble in sport, broadens understanding of and delight in sport. The Olympic movement throws across the differences which tend to separate nations a bridge of sports friendship comprising athletes. These are some of the reasons why the Olympic movement is increasingly attractive to and popular among peoples, The Olympic Games constitute the peak event in all sporting life, and to take part in them is the greatest privilege a sports-man can win. In Poland, as in other countries, the idea of the Olympiads has for dozens of years fired more and more sport lovers' imaginations.
The fact that Poland is sending to far (iff Australia a team to take part in the XVI Olympic Gaines is proof in it-self of the attraction to us of the Olympic conception. This will be the seventh time that Poles have borne their country's colours on Olympic tracks. Eager new friendships will no doubt be formed at these Olympic Games, and we feel that many from other countries who meet our representatives will want to know more about sport in general, and the Olympic movement in particular, in Poland. It is our profound wish that the pages of this book may make a contribution 'o fostering better mutual understanding 'ind to intensifying the spirit of friend-ship among the great family of sporting participants and fans."
