[quote="TalkingPoint"][size=24][b]Olympics. Taking part is more important than winning.[/b][/size]

Athletes from many different nations take part in the Olympic Games. Not everyone can win. Is it important to win? Or is it more important to participate, even if you don't win?

[color=darkred][b]Word Checker[/b][/color]
[b]take part:[/b] to participate; to be part of; to be involved
[b]important:[/b] of great significance or value
[b]win:[/b] to come first; to be victorious[/quote]
I don't think so.The desire of winningwill make me run faster,jump higher.SO my goal is win.

It is very important to participat but what is more important is that the participants chanlleng themselves and try to do the best, not just for fun. because we can have fun everywhere if we want.But a sport race is not an occasion just for fun it is an opportunity to overcome chanllenge ...........

In all, joining a competition is a good opportunity to evaluate entrants' ability. The people or the teams who take part in the competition do their best to reach the prize. In my opinion, it is wonderful if you get the prize, it is not a problem in the contrary.
It clear that a person/ a team win while another lose in a competition. I absolutely agree that taking part is more important than winning, because a competition is just a game.

In every game/competition that we participate it is not compulsory to win, but WIN and LOSE is apart of game, if we lose it will be a good experience for us to learn better and show better performance next time.
