关于奥运会的对话3

2006-05-16 14:41

  Annie: Where are you heading for?

  David: Take a walk. I just had dinner, and you?

  Annie: I'm taking a walk too. I have just watched a game. It was really interesting.

  David : Annie, do you know "Olympic Vow"?

  Annie: Yes. In fact, the oath was composed by Pierre De Coubertin. At the opening ceremony, an athlete of the host country recites the following, "In the name of all competitors, I promise that we will take part in these Olympic Games, respeting and abiding by the rules which govern us, in the true spirit of sportsmanship for the glory of sports and the honor of our teams."

  David: Did it start from the 7th Games?

  Annie: Yes, Besides taking an oath by the athletes, the flag was raised from that time as well.

  David: Ah, yes, I know about the flags. There will be a handing-over and taking-over ceremony in each closing ceremony of the Olympic Games. The mayor of the host city will give the flag to president of the IOC, and president will hand it to the mayor of the next host city.

  Annie: But do you know the flag raised at the opening ceremony of the Olympics is only a substitute? The host city treasures it after it receives the flag.

  David: Oh, really? I didn't know that. The flag was officially used on June 15, 1914. It was first raised at the celebration congress of the 20th anniversary restoration of the Olympic movement in Paris. Unfortunately, this Olympic flag was burned in the flames of WWI.

  Annie: Then where does the flag we use now come from?

  David: The flag we use now was made by the Belgium Olympic Committee in 1920 when the Games were held in Antwerp. It was given to the International Olympic Committee as a gift, which has been used since then.

  Annie: It was passed down one games after another and it became an "heirloom".
