Olympic Message

“The most important thing about the Olympic Games is not to win, but to take part... just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph, but the struggle”.  Those are the  words of wisdom of Baron Pierre de Coubertin. He is the reason why the Modern Olympics are still running right now, and he is also the designer of the Olympic Flag.  I think this message is very inspiring and motivational towards others.

Personally, I think this is a very good message, and very encouraging to many athletes. The message conveys that you must learn from your mistakes, and keep on moving.  Your struggle leads to your success.  Pierre de Coubertin’s words have helped many athletes.  Even our very own Nicholas Willis conveys the Olympic message during an interview.


  1. Hi Toreka,

    You are exactly right. Olympics is not about winning,
    it is about giving one's best and taking part.

    WELL DONE!!!

    God Bless.

  2. Hi Toreka

    You are damn right. Olympics is not always about winning, it's about having fun and co-operating with each other.

    Good Job!

    Thora :]
