As a class we were interested in the Olympic Creed. So we explored the part ‘Not to have conquered but to have fought well’.
Together we came up with some of the qualities the Olympians would need to fight well:
- Ability to push past pain,
- Self motivation,
- Honesty (Integrity),
- Willingness to push to your limits,
- To be tough,
- To be enthusiastic and have that desire to win.
Our Olympians strive to win and to do very well, this is what matters. They are there to participate and they want to conquer. We don't believe our Olympians go just to participate, they all have their eyes on the medals. And so they should!
We are proud of our Equestrians and Rowers. We sympathise with those who struggle and faced challenges like when a paddle broke for our rowers, bad weather disrupting preparation for a horse, tired horses, competing against better teams and having to live with the mistakes the umpire makes. However our Olympians have participated fully, given their all and it is natural to feel disappointed when things don’t go to plan.
Our Olympians inspire us to:
-follow our dreams although it will take effort and might be painful,
-live to our fill potential,
-focus and put in the hard work daily,
-never let age be a barrier to reaching our dreams.
What goals are you striving for this year? Are you prepared to make it happen?
