The Olympic Spirit: Bringing Us Together Through Sports

Joined: 2/21/2014

For me, the Olympic spirit means more than just athletes competing in different sporting events. I think it is a way for all countries to show their overall togetherness and willingness to cooperate. Competing against each other in sports is just one way to show that idea.
I feel that competing in any sport against another person or team is one of the best and deepest ways to connect with and show respect for them. By sharing a passion for the sport, as well as embracing the competitive spirit alongside them, you are really showing them and the entire world the great joy and enthusiasm that all countries have during the Olympics.
I also believe that the spirit that is exhibited throughout the Olympics is one of friendly competition, rather than cut-throat, "do anything to win" type of competition. As previously stated, you are showing respect to your fellow competitors, but also showing your pride in your own country. I feel that working hard for so many years and practicing to make it to the Olympic Games and finally performing with the goal of winning a medal for your country is one of the greatest ways to honor your heritage and show national pride.
Olympic Spirit is so much more than just competing in a sport against other people, at least to me. I think it's about supporting your country and embracing that competitive spirit that brings all people together through sports.
