“To contribute to building apeaceful and better worldby educating youth throughsport practisedwithout discrimination of any kindand n the Olympic spirit, whichrequiresmutual understandingwith a spiritoffriendship, solidarityandfair play”

The Goal Olympic movement


How many times have you taken part in an activity or competition in your life?

As a result of taking part, how many times have you won?

Do you think that the times that you didn’t win did you harm or were less influential in your personal, social or emotional development?

Is competition the only route to being a winner?



Insert video: top level peformers just “playing and having fun”

Which is more importanto you?

You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing that we call "failure" is not the falling down, but the staying down.

Getting up is called winning.

Mary Pickford(Movie Star)

Barcelona, 1992Derek Redmond felt his hamstring tear in his right leg. His father, stunned by what had happened, found himself supporting his son to the finish line. As he crossed the line, the crowd roared out in appreciation. Afterward, a reporter asked the runner why he had not retired from the race, since he had no chance of winning. He seemed confused by the question. Finally, he answered:

"My country did not send me to the Olympics to start the race. They sent me to finish."
