Post 63-Let The Games Begin

The Summer Olympics are finally here.The summer Olympics have been going for over 100 years and has been a part of so many peoples lives.I love the Olympics because, besides every single different language, religion, ethnic,and tradition,the Olympics is still able to bring every country together to play games that people love and love to watch in good competition.The modern Olympic games started in 1896 starting with lesser than 250 athletes.Now the Olympic games has over 10,000 athletes from over 200 different nations and over 300 different events.The Olympic games has inspired generation after generation and I am also very inspired from the Olympics.Just to do what you love,be a part of something so big,and win a medal while you're there is a dream and amazing.To go to the Olympics and do what you love while competing and meeting people all around the world is an athletes dream. And from watching the Olympics and all the great athletes it inspired me and billions of other people to go out in the world and let your talent shine.It has inspired millions of athletes to try to make it to the Olympics and to try to get that gold.To win for yourself,win for your country,and inspire others and that's the best thing in the world and for every single person.I love the games and hope someday to be there at the opening ceremony singing and/or dancing my heart out to celebrate the start of the Olympics.Today in honor of the Olympics my quotes will be about the Olympics and the power and inspiration it brings to every athlete out there.
