Citius, Altuis, Fortius

Olympic Stadium Statues Gate
In Athens, Greece.

At the Olympic Stadium.  This is the entrance into the stadium from the athletes’ quarters.  For wannabe Olympians like me, being able to walk up into the stadium through those gates was a memorable experience.  Even just imagining the crowd cheering me on as I emerged ready to run, jump, and throw for glory was enough to make me feel like part of the millennia-old celebration of athletics born here.
