The Spirit of Olympics

The father of Olympics, Pierre de Coubertin, once phrased sports as a combat he said, “The important thing in life is not victory but combat; it is not to have vanquished but to have fought well.” When the idea of hosting modern Olympics came to Baron Coubertin, he had only thought to host it in Paris in 1900 but delegates from 34 countries were so enthralled with the concept that they convinced him to move it to 1896 and host it in Athens.
