"The most important thing in the Olympics 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."
~The Olympic Creed
A little-known fact: the Olympic Creed was inspired by a bishop’s sermon at St. Paul’s Cathedral during the 1908 Games in London. More here, including the uncropped version of the photo with the back story to the origins of this creed.
