Olympic Solidarity’s main mission is to provide assistance to National Olympic Committes for athlete development programs, in particular those with the greatest need for it, in order that NOCs may fulfil their responsibilities to the Olympic Movement while adhering to the IOC’s strategy.

One of Olympic Solidarity’s targets for the programs is to contribute to the education and technical level of coaches allowing them to further support the development of their athletes and their sport.

The development areas of the 2021-2024 Olympic Solidarity programs are focused on Athletes and Sports Development, Olympic Values and Capacity Building & Administration.

The Athletes and Sport Development programs involve the ITTF and its Member Associations. They aim assistance at athletes at different levels of development, their entourage and the structures meant to support them. Successful implementation of these programs should contribute to the improved universality of the Olympic Games and the development of sport around the world.

2021-2024 OS Programs involving ITTF and ITTF Member Associations:


Team Support Grant
Olympic Scholarship for Athletes


Development of National Sports System


Technical Courses for Coaches

Olympic Solidarity also introduced RELAY – the upgraded and more efficient version of the OS online platform which serves to apply for OS funding.
