Olympic Opening


Author:  GSLC

At the start of each Olympics, every athlete promises to play fairly
and obey all of the Olympic rules. One athlete from the host country
takes this oath at the Opening Ceremonies on behalf of all athletes.
The oath was written by Baron de Coubertin, and became a part of
our Modern Olympic Games in 1920. The chosen athlete holds a
corner of the Olympic Flag while repeating the oath:
“In the name of all competitors, I promise that we shall take part
in these Olympic Games, respecting and abiding by the rules that
govern them, in the true spirit of sportsmanship, for the glory of sport and the honor of our
teams.”
Tonight we will open our ‘Go for the Gold’ meeting the same way that the athletes begin each
Olympics.
