Each medalist has been a leader in their own right and has gone on to inspire others after them. We know these champions lived the Olympic motto: "Citius Altius Fortius" - Faster Higher Stronger. These words encourage them to give their very best.
The Olympic creed complements this and promotes having a character full of integrity, respect, and kindness: "The most important thing in life is not the triumph, but the fight; the essential thing is not to have won, but to have fought well." We know this creed also promotes humility as the victors recognise the efforts all competitors have invested.
