With a spectacular opening ceremony the XXXI Olympic Games have started. The world´s biggest sporting event, aimed at “the progressive improvement of the man thanks to sport in its ontological status” ( “Citius, Fortius, Altius”), based on the values of respect, friendship and excellence.
Although the victory is recognition, the theme of the competition of the Games can be summarized in the thought of Ethelbert Tallboten June 1908: “The important thing is not to win, but to compete”. Coubertin completed the famous phrase: “The important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle, the essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well. Extending these ideas is to prepare, a stronger, more scrupulous bravest humanity and, therefore, more self-sacrificing” … His passion for a tireless and combative spirit is reflected in a paragraph of his autobiographical novel Le Roman d’un Rallié: “Life is simple, because the fight is simple. The good fighter go back but never give up. If the impossible stands before him, he turns away and goes further. If he is out of breath, will rest and expect. If he is out of action, he encourages his brothers. And even when everything seems to collapse, desparation will not affect him”.
