She said that she has to work hard but she ismotivated.Olympic messageThe most important thing in the Olympic Games is notto win but to take part, just as the most important thingin life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essentialthing is not to have conquered but to have fought well."In the Olympic games as in each kind of sports, the mostimportant thing is not to win, the important things is toparticipate and have fun. Many people don’t know it;we think that if you are a really sportman orsportwoman you must know it.If you win something it is great. You get very proud ofyourself, but if you lose, you can’t get angry and be sad.You have taken part and enjoyed it.Source: http://www.london2012.com 8
