Boxing legend Chris Eubank Sr gives inspiring words ahead of Olympics.
“I remember living in New York City and watching the Los Angeles Olympics and being inspired by the poetry and form of Carl Lewis, Pernell Whitaker and the top gymnasts. I was on heat to train.
“I’m a London boy and to see The Games here now, boy, I don’t know if I ever thought I would. It’s just fantastic.
“And The Games can inspire like none other; watching Linford Christie and Colin Jackson give every last sinew in their beings to reach those finishing lines for Rule Brittania.
“But 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 Games give us the chance to celebrate our shared humanity, and the object of the competitors should be to express this humanity by performing fairly and honestly to the best of their natural ability.
“The Olympic spirit can be seen in all those who compete in the Games, not just in those who win the medals.
“This spirit can be seen in athletes from poorer parts of the world, who have little chance to develop their skills or gain experience, but who do the best they can with limited resources, and who represent their country with pride and dignity.
“In the spirit of the Olympics, the most important thing is to have taken part fairly, and to have done one’s best. This is what the Olympic Games are really about, and some might say it’s what life is really about as well.”
