Citius, Altius, Fortius
Petition Background (Preamble):
This decision goes against the basic Olympic Creed, which Baron de Coubertin installed in 1896. It states the following:
"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."
Those who support this elitist decision are thumbing their nose at the very ideals that Baron de Coubertin envisioned when he brought back the Olympic Games.
The Citius, Altius, Fortius petition to Jacques Rogge-President, IOC was written by James McCarthy and is in the category Sports at GoPetition. Contact author here.
