"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 not the triumph, but the struggle.
The essential thing is not to have conquered, but to have fought well."
The Olympic Creed
Every four years the world celebrates as the athletes take an oath, "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 the honour of our teams."
We've been studying different Summer Olympic sports. With a partner we chose a sport and wrote about it and made an illustration to go along with it. We also made some activities for our visitors to have fun with. We hope you have a good time reading our work and playing our games. Don't forget to watch for your favorite sport on television during the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece.
