The olympics are more than sports By:Lila jarvis

Some history.

  • To give you a idea of back in the old days Threw the years of olympics we have involved in acent Greece it was a way to worship Zues. " Only FREE Greek men could compete." They included long jump, boxing, javelin, running, horse racing, and pankration which is a mix of boxing and wrestling. " There were both 2- chariot and 4- chariot races"


Be great at art

They were also about art. “The fine arts were combined harmoniously with the olympic games to create their glory. This is to become reality once again” SQ3 SOURCE B “As to dance, it was demanded that it returned to a more athletic way of expression.” SQ3 SOURCE B. Take gymnastics for example it is art of "Artistic gymnastics is a discipline of gymnastics in which athletes perform short routines (ranging from approximately 30 to 90 seconds) on different apparatus, with less time for vaulting. ... Artistic gymnastics is a popular spectator sport at the Summer Olympic Games and in other competitive environments." (

Unite us as one

Stand together

The olympics is a way to bring people around the world together. It does not matter what you look like or who you are this is a time for our wolrd to be one. " Brought together to one locality of the globe." SQ 2 source A

Good sports manship

Little imfo

This is very important. Every one needs to know what this is. For Example if you lose a race you shake hands with the winner. Not throw a fit like a 5 year old kid! Sport man ship is always in the olympics. this is a video that gives a better idea of the olympic life about 2 to 3 minutes long.

3 values

Respect the values

Sure the olymipcs are manly about sports but there are much more to the olympics than sports. It is about these 3 things. "Excellence-giving one's best" "Friendship-to build a peaceful and better world." "Respect- For your self and one's body." SQ2 SOURCE C

It is not just about winning

Winning does not mater

Winning is nice of course. When you win you feel a sense of pride. But how ever in the olympics they would rather make friends instead of a enemy. Threw out the olympics are great athletes... but how ever they would have more respect, sport man-ship, and excellence.

Olympics are not just about sports they are much more.
