Olympics 2021

Welcome to week 16 of  Blogging Through the Alphabet 2021. This week our letter of the alphabet is the letter O and I thought I'd share a couple of resources to get you looking at the Olympics as it commences tomorrow!  It's certainly going to be a different one this year and a year late to boot.  My co-host Desiree at Our Homeschool Notebook the topic is O is for Olympics.

This year the summer Olympic Games are being hosted in Tokyo from the 23 July 2021 to the 8 August 2021.  The Paralympic Games are being hoted from the 24 August to the 5th of September.  I'm quite excited about these games as Australia has a homeschool student - Oceana Mackenzie who is competing in the new sport climbing division. We also have extended family - Kate French from the United Kingdom modern pentathlon team competing as well. Wow and as I was writing this it was announced that in 4021 days Brisbane Queensland will be hosting the 2032 Olympic Games.

The Olympic Creed

"The most important thing in the Olympic Games 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." Olympic Creed 

The Olympic Charter

"The practice of sport is a human right. Every individual must have the possibility of practicing sport, without discrimination of any kind and in the Olympic spirit, which requires mutual understanding with a spirit of friendship, solidarity and fair play." –Olympic Charter
