At Bucharest, the first major population conference of the modern era, delegations from the Third World, the industrialized western nations, the Holy See and the communist bloc all found within the final set of recommendations approved by the conference a basis to claim victory for their side. Victory was also claimed on the grounds that the conference document was prevented from going as far as one group or another wanted. (...) Participants to the Rome and Belgrade meetings, in contrast to subsequent United Nations conferences on population, were invited in their individual capacities as experts and not as representatives of governments or organizations. (...) Long before the Cairo conference itself, according to numerous members of women's rights groups, a strategy was developed by them to deliver their message to the entire series of conferences in a way that would enable them to build victory upon victory. The success of this approach was predicated on the realization by women's groups that NGOs in the 1990s were in closer contact with one another across borders and that United Nations conferences provided a more congenial atmosphere for NGOs than in the past.

U N I T E D N AT I O N S N AT I O N S U N I E S PA G E 2 Excellencies, Sport’s significance for the improvement of an individual’s character and a society’s welfare traces its origins back to the very dawn of our civilizations—to pharaonic Egypt and ancient China. (...) The Olympic Creed was inspired by the words of the Greek philosopher Epictetus: “the most important thing in the Olympics is not winning, but taking part; the essential thing in life is not victory, but contesting well and nobly.” To this very day, this immortal phrase represents the true essence of the Olympic spirit. (...) Excellencies, In establishing this International Day, let us pay tribute to the great legends of the past, whose athletic achievements, character, and moral fortitude have earned them a place of distinction in the pantheon of Olympic glory—champions such as Jesse Owens, who defied fascist ideology through his stunning victory in Berlin in 1936.
