(SFC) – Brazilian Olympic Committee President Carlos Arthur Nuzman, minister of sports Aldo Rebelo, FIESP/SESI President Paulo Skaf, Bradesco President Luiz Carlos Trabuco, and many other sports authorities, businessmen, athletes, and Olympic medallists attended the opening of the Olympic Games: Sports, Culture and Art exhibition at the FIESP Cultural Center – Ruth Cardosa in Sao Paulo 15 April.

“We are all honoured and proud to bring the Sao Paulo this exhibit that is a unique opportunity for the Brazilian people to know and get close to the history of the Olympic Games over time,” Nuzman said. “The mission of this exhibition is to contribute to awake the Olympic spirit in every visitor and in every Brazilian.”

More than 300 individual pieces from the Modern Era of the Olympic Games are on display at the Olympic Games: Sports, Culture and Art exhibition. The COB, in conjunction with the International Olympic Committee, which holds most of the items, put together the collections. The exhibition runs through 30 June.

“It is the first time the exhibition of the IOC Olympic Museum comes to Brazil,” Nuzman said. “We will have the opportunity to honour the history of international sports and mainly the athletes who did their best in representing our country.”

“The Sao Paulo industry prioritizes education, but when we talk about education, we do not mean just the education given the classrooms or laboratories,” Skaf said. “Education also takes place in the sports courts and involves good food and cultural practices.”

“This exhibition is an acknowledgement to all Brazilian athletes, all of our efforts, to this motivation we have tried to pass on to younger athletes during our career,” swimmer and Olympic medallist Thiago Pereira said.

The project, organized by COB, is presented by FIESP, SESI-SP, Ministry of Culture and Grupo Bradesco Seguros, with the support of Panasonic.
