  • 4. This Olympic (or "Olympic Message") has appeared on the scoreboard during Ceremony at every modern Olympic Games. Baron de Coubertin was inspired to adopt this creed after he heard a sermon by the Bishop of Pennsylvania, at a service for Olympic in 1908. It reminds us that in our life, just like in the Olympics, is not the most important thing. It is the ultimate challenge for which we all struggle as we strive to be "Swifter, Higher, Stronger." "The most thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in is not the triumph, but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered, but to have well."   Starter – fill in the gaps

  • 8. How true to you? Cut out the statements and place them in....order from left to right regarding how strongly you agree with them........
  • 9. London 2012 will demonstrate to young people the power of the Games to bring the world together. The Olympics idea inspires people to be the best they can. The ‘Green Games’ approach shows young people with environmental concerns that sport can be a driver of change in areas of interest to them. The Paralympic Games will mean improved infrastructure including more accessible sporting venues and better public transport for those with disabilities. Games will be everyone’s Games – an inclusive and wholly-integrated part of an inspiring 60-day celebration of youth, sport and culture. Less that a third of young people are not active enough to enjoy a healthy lifestyle. Young people will be encouraged to be healthier because of the 2012 Olympics. More young people in Britain will train for sport hoping to take part in the London 2012 Olympics. Watching British athletes take part in the Olympics will inspire young children to take part in sport in the future. The venues, school and community education programmes, will help to increase participation in sport and physical activity among young people.
