The “faster, taller, stronger” Olympic motto was “updated faster, taller, stronger – Together” to reflect solidarity around the world during the Covid-19 era on Tuesday. The International Olympic Committee approved the change at the previous session of the Tokyo Olympics, which was delayed last year and was in danger of being canceled due to the pandemic. “We see everywhere the effort made in Cooperation to achieve faster and better solutions than working in silos,” said COI President Thomas Bach while unanimously supporting the proposal. The Latin motto “faster, taller, stronger” or “Citius, Altius, Fortius” has been an Olympic motto since 1894, when it was approved at the birth of the COI on the proposal of the body’s founder Pierre de Coubertin.
We move forward when we move together.

The Latin version of the new motto is “Citius, Altius, Fortius, Communiter.”
Ski mountaineering was also accepted as a sports accessory for the 2026 Milan-Cortina Winter Games.
The “Ski-mo” is for ski mountaineering or skiing, depending on the slope and then downhill skiing, and is very popular in Italy.
The 2026 Games will feature five medal trials, two men’s (Sprint / individual), two Women’s (Sprint / individual) and a mixed gender relay.
