"In the name of all competitors, I promise that we shall take part in these Olympic Games, respecting and abiding by the rules that govern them, in the true spirit of sportsmanship, for the glory of sport and the honour of our teams." -- The Olympic Oath.
This oath is taken by an athlete or athletes from the host nation spoken in the native language at the Opening Ceremonies. The athlete holds a corner of the Olympic Flag in his or her left hand and raises his or her right hand while the flag bearers of the other nations stand in a semi circle.
The Olympic Oath was written by Baron Pierre de Coubertin, the founder of the Modern Olympic Movement. It was first recited at the 1920 Olympic Games in Antwerp, Belgium. The phrase, "committing ourselves to a sport without doping and without drugs," was added to the Olympic Oath at the 2000 Sydney Games.
On behalf of all the judges, a judge from the host country takes the judge's oath stating, "In the name of all the judges and officials, I promise that we shall officiate in these Olympic Games with complete impartiality, respecting and abiding by the rules which govern them in the true spirit of sportsmanship."
