The Olympic Creed
The official Olympic Creed states: “The most important thing in 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. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well.”
It has been difficult to find positive news about the upcoming Rio de Janeiro Olympics lately. Reports of polluted waters, Zika virus concerns, unfinished venues due to corruption and reports of athletes being robbed are all concerns leading some top athletes to elect not to participate. I was planning to compile some of the recent headlines but found that Stephen Colbert summed it up very comprehensively on an episode of the Late Show. He highlights the humor in the struggle that Olympic organizers must be experiencing. Who knew that the Olympic Creed would be as pertinent to getting the games underway as to the actual athletic events.
Enjoy the Fourth of July holiday weekend and please take a minute to capture your fun in a few photos and share them with us at email@example.com.
