Merely participating in the Olympic Games is a victory in itself. The failure to win a medal should not diminish the honour of having participated in a contest with the worlds best athletes. The principle of the Olympic movement is contained in the words of Pierre de Coubertin: 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.
