Topic: Spirit of the Olympics

 “To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice your gift”[Steve Prefontaine]. If you work hard and are determined to win you’ll be the best you can be. To work your way to the finish line you have to be willing to do stuff nobody else will do. If you do the best you can, then you’ll be a superstar in my opinion. That is the Spirit of the Olympics!

Some people talk about the “Spirit of the Olympics.” It can mean many different things. I think it means that giving up a lot of things to follow your dreams. That is the Spirit of the Olympics.

The spirit of olympics is when you work your hardest to make what your meant to do. To give anything do anything.

Steve Prefontaine once said “I do it because I can, I can because I want to, I want to because you said I couldn’t.

You have to do things that no one else is willing to do to be the best, and to be a champion. You need to have a lot of courage, and be willing to take important matters into your own hands and take things to a new, higher level.

ZOOM! The runners are off,and they are full of determination to WIN that race! Most adults talk about the spirit of the olympics but kids don’t,because they ask what does it mean?

The Spirit of Olympics is in your heart and your heart can do it.

That was a quote I wrote. One thing spirit of the olympics is it is what you do.And it is in your heart that you know. Here is another quote: if it makes you happy, no one else’s opinion should matter. That’s another quote. Don’t let people get to you. Do what you want.

If people get to you you won’t be happy. :( So be brave!
