Olympic Lions

Countries cultivate elite,
willing to demonstrate discipline,
and compete for gold.

Each athlete remembers a time,
achieving this dream was not a possibility.

With hearts of lions,

inspiration is the flint,
that ignites the Olympic Torch.

Going the distance in this competition,
captures the world’s imagination,
to celebrate the dedication.

Only one winner,
tears in defeat should be wiped away with pride.
For each entrants performance is worthy,
of National Treasure.
