35years Cyprus Olympic Committee coverThis English Magazine edition aims to enlighten the visiting sports officials, coaches, athletes and sports teams in general who will be coming to Cyprus, on the work of the Cyprus Olympic Committee as well as its 35-year history in sports and the Olympics.

The Cyprus Olympic Committee, which was established on 10 June, 1974 and became a full member of the International Olympic Committee on 10 April, 1979, has some important work ahead.

Not even two months had past since the Cyprus Olympic Committee was established when tragedy hit our homeland. The Turkish invasion of the island ultimately had a negative impact on all sectors of the Cyprus Republic’s infrastructure.

Amidst harsh times, the Cyprus Olympic Committee attempted to regroup and it succeeded, resulting in a 35-year effort which has seen positive strides for Cypriot sport. In 1989, they successfully hosted the Games of the Small States of Europe with officials of the International Olympic Committee showering the organisers of the Cyprus Olympic Committee with praise.

This magazine edition aims at presenting its reader with the opportunity to learn some basic things about Cyprus, the work of the Cyprus Olympic Committee and the history of the island’s sports dating back from ancient times to the present day.

Although brief, this edition still emphasises the aim which is to highlight the work and important landmarks of the Cyprus Olympic Committee’s 35-year history and sports on the island.
