We must understand that he not just returned the Olympic Games to the world; he became the sport`s father in the kind of which we know it. Before Coubertin the sport was practically undeveloped especially team sport. Pierre de Coubertin stayed Honorary President of the IOC for the until his death. He died in 1937 at the age of 74 in Geneva and was buried in Lausanne — the city where is located the headquarters of his brainchild, the International Olympic Committee.
