Description

Olympic achievementIt is also worth noting that the original games were Pan-Hellenic ("all Greek" to you, and anyone who will listen) although some potential competitors were considered unwelcome while others simply refused to take part. This has become an established Olympic tradition. United we stand - Vision 2 of de CoubertinThat the games should foster the ideal of the Brotherhood of Man. With the ideal of the Brotherhood of Man can be twinned the concept of Brotherly Love (here you could mention quietly that Philadelphia means Brotherly Love), which is demonstrably lacking at key Olympic moments. Second chanceThe most important three seconds in Olympic history were those added at the end of the controversial 1972 men's basketball final which gave victory to the USSR over the USA. Tennis anyoneThis is one of the most enduring of Olympic sports. It has been in and out of favor over the years and has appeared in a number of different forms. These include real tennis, lawn tennis, indoor tennis, and table tennis. The modern form of the game, as played in the Grand Slam, re-emerged as an Olympic sport in 1988 after a gap of more than 60 years.
