The Olympic Creed

This is the Olympic Creed written by Pierre De Coubertin. 
It says: 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 is not triumph but the stuggle. The most important thing is not to conquer but to have fought well.

The Olympic Oath

This is the olympic oath,(promise), that one famous athlete says each year for the olympics.
"In the name of all competitors, I promise that we shall take part in these olympic games, respecting and abiding by the rules that govern them, in the true spirit of sportsmanship, for the glory of sport and honour of our teams."

Bees

It is not very often that bees attack. They only sting if they are getting provoked. For bees as a rule they only sting if getting killed. When they are alarmed their natured weapons get put to use as self defence. But once they sting they sadly die.


On the bottom of the bee's stinger is a fine sharp barbed tube. Which is where a drop of poison is injected into the human body. It is only the worker bee that stings.


We often hear people stating that bees can only sting once then die. Well what generally happens is when the person is stung, they instantly knock the offending bee away which causes it bad injuries. Once knocked,  the bee is torn away from its stinger and dies.


A true fact is that bees can sting as often as we allow it as long as we don’t tear it from away its stinger.

Chariot racing was one of the most popular sports in Greece. This sport was found to be the only Olympic type of event in ancient types.  Chariot racing was the most important equestrian sport. It was also a sport of war and strength. Men and only men were allowed to compete.

The Olympic Flag

The Olympic rings are made up of the colours Blue, yellow, black, green, and red. These rings stand for the union of different countries meeting and competing at the olympics. Baron Pierre De Coubertin designed this symbol.

    As the olympic flag enters the stadium, it’s almost the start of the games. Elevating up the flagpole it soars until the olympics are ended. It is only in the closing ceremony it comes down. This is what signals the end of the games.
