Baron Pierre de Coubertin the founder of the Olympic flag, said that “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”. This is the olympic message that was devoted to all the athletes and the participators, coming from the one and only, Baron Pierre de Coubertin.
The Olympic message can be explained in many different ways, to many different people. My opinion about the Olympic message is very much alike. Life isn’t always about the glory, but it is also about the trials and tribulations you go through. If you go through things like struggles you can learn from it, and accomplish much more things, and be successful in life.
I agree with the statement because it is exactly what people are doing now a days. People should be in it for the participation, instead of for the triumph. I am usually cocky when my team wins a game, but now that I have read this, it has shown me the right thing to do, when winning. Is to be humble.
Being apart of the Olympics takes up a lot of time from the athlete’s social life. The one main thing that they do give all is sacrifice. For instance they gave up all of their time just to train and prepare for the Olympics. In other words they have to keep on a strict diet, specific foods and much much more. To help them get through the tough times they always have the Olympic message running through the back of their minds.
The Olympic message is very helpful to those athletes, that look down on themselves. And I think that it will help a lot of other people in their own lives and social lives. And it will sure help them strive to the end and be successful in life.
