The Olympic Cup.

The Olympic Cup (French: Coupe olympique) is an award given annually by the International Olympic Committee.

It was instituted by Pierre de Coubertin in 1906 and is awarded to an institution or association with a record of merit and integrity in actively developing the Olympic Movement.[1]

Its recipients have included amateur sports clubs, schools, newspapers and national sporting administrations, though it is primarily awarded to groups connected with the organization of the Olympic Games.
