What is the Olympic Truce? It is an ancient tradition that calls for truce during the Olympic games to allow a peaceful environment for the games and safe passage for the participants. The UK is committed to the Olympic Truce and promoting peace and unity through sports. That is why they are supporting the RISE (St. Lucia) Inc. Sports Initiative. Learn more about their programs and the Olympic Truce on their website: http://www.fco.gov.uk/en/global-issues/london-2012/olympic-truce.
