Pierre de Coubertin

Baron Pierre de Coubertin (1863 – 1937) was a French aristocrat who was very interested in history and education. After visiting Rugby School in England, where rugby was invented as a schoolboy game, he decided that having physical education in school was essential and tried hard (unsuccessfully) to get sport adopted in French schools.
 
 He then went on to push the idea of a modern Olympic Games, and he was the founder, and later President, of the International Olympic Committee.
 
 “Organised sport can create moral and social strength.”
 Baron Pierre de Coubertin
