- Aug 10, 2008It's the only time in 4 years, where I can somehow justify watching
archery on television.
The Olympics is a marvellous event, it must be great to participate in
the games. However, I liked this observation by Sri Chinmoy about one
of the greatest Olympians of all time - Emil Zatopek
"Zatopek is sincerity incarnate. He has always given the topmost
priority to truth in every aspect of his life. At times, his sincerity
has been so soulfully moving. On the eve of the 1948 Olympics, his
sincerity reached the highest height. "It was my first competition in
Olympic Games and I was surprised to come to Olympic stadium and to
read most important things about the Games: 'Not to win but to take
part'. Whatnot to win? Ah, but I wish to win! "
Emil Zatopek won 3 Gold medals at the 1952 Olympics.
- 5,000 metres
- 10,000 mertres
I am looking forward to watching more of the Olympics. I wonder
whether Great Britain can get more medals than Australia this time?
