Mission and Vision


The Albergue Olímpico founder, Don Germán Rieckehoff, as a visionary genius, knew how to summarize the worthy mission and the usefulness of this extraordinary Center for sports development and better social and family coexistence with eloquent precision:

“Its purpose is to build positively oriented and educated minds in healthy bodies with the ability to create new expectations from life. Using our sports facilities, the athletes will be able to train while addressing their physical, psychological and spiritual needs. At the same time, it is a family center where the ethical and moral rules of our coexistence are valued and where all can share in a fully healthy environment”.


We have a vast territorial expansion that allows us to continue with the Master Plan of infrastructure and permanent works, within the context of our Olympic mission and our academic, recreational, health and social function. In this way, we contribute significantly to the improvement of the quality of life of our country and serve the Olympic movement in America and the rest of the world. The ambitious development Plan of the Albergue Olímpico includes among other major works: the remodeling of dormitories, dining room and ramp for disabled persons in the Athlete’s Village; Sports Hotel; Sports Center Arena; the Sports Aegis Roundabout; Water Polo Artificial Lake; mountain climbing; cable car; Olympic Sanctuary; Convention Center; Clay Court at the Tennis Center and an Olympic velodrome (cycling oval). This plan will serve for the promulgation of the Olympic ideal in our continent and the education of the new leaders of the Olympic movement. In addition, with the support of the International Olympic Committee we intend to create, in the Albergue Olímpico, the Olympic Academy of America.
