We, the undersigned call on International Olympic Committee and the International Paralympic Committee, to combine the Olympics and Paralympics in to one event.

According all athletes (regardless of the current separation) the same recognition, respect and acknowledgement of their achievement and commitment to their chosen sport.

Section 4 and 5 of the Fundamental Principles of Olympism states:

“The practice of sport is a human right. Every individual must have the possibility of practising sport, without discrimination of any kind and in the Olympic spirit, which requires mutual understanding with a spirit of friendship, solidarity and fair play. The organisation, administration and management of sport must be controlled by independent sports organisations.”

“Any form of discrimination with regard to a country or a person on grounds of race, religion, politics, gender or otherwise is incompatible with belonging to the Olympic Movement.”

Continued separation of the games in to two separate events goes against such principles.
