As a specific practical education model, the Olympic movement plays an important role in exerting the function of ideological education. Competitive sports have achieved their main performance through the Olympic movement, but excessive competition in competitive sports has led to alienation, deviation and distortion of the original intention of competitive subjects to achieve themselves, serious damage to the fair and just order, and a clear trend of politicization of the Olympic movement, which seriously hinders the full play of the ideological and educational functions of the Olympic movement. This paper attempts to clarify the ideological and educational function of the Olympic movement, hoping that it can provide useful assistance.
