Ss will most probably say things like : helping others, helping opponents, respect others etc. 2. The Teacher writes “Be a good Sport” on the board and asks students to explain what it means. If they do not know what the expression means, the teacher writes it on the board. A cheerful, helpful person who lets you enjoy yourself and never complains. (mention spoil-sport) 3. The Teacher then asks what the expression could mean when used in connection with playing sports. A good sport is someone who knows how to lose. Ask if they know the opposite.

The Olympic Creed The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well. The Olympic Oath “In the name of all competitors, I promise that we shall take part in these Olympic Games, respecting and abiding by the rules which govern them, in the true spirit of sportsmanship, for the glory of sport and the honour of our teams. ©Υπουργείο Παιδείας και Πολιτισμού

9 Champions or just Athletes? Appendix B
Poor Sportsmanship There are some who say the famous phrase “I should of won not them. That is it. I am mad!” Then there are those who accept the fact and take it like a man and walk away till the next time. Screaming and throwing a fit because you didn’t win is poor sportsmanship and it makes you a very sore loser. That shows and tells me you are just spoilt rotten to the core and care for no one except yourself. Losing and disappointments are all part of the learning tool of life. We have to step back and realize or ask the question. OK. Why didn’t I win? ©Υπουργείο Παιδείας και Πολιτισμού

10 Champions or just Athletes? Appendix B
Then you take those faults and improve them and get back in and do it all over again. Who knows- you might just win, And learn to have respect for Yourself as well as others. Always remember winning isn’t Everything-‘tis what you have Learned that makes you a winner. By Brenda Kaye ©Υπουργείο Παιδείας και Πολιτισμού

11 Champions or just Athletes? Appendix B
A good sport His best ever finish is a seventeenth place And it’s likely now he’ll never win a race He goes by the name of the “unplaced athlete” But the main thing about him is that he does compete As without his type others they could not run for gold And stories of their greatness could not be written or told And though for him the bonfires they never will blaze He should be remembered and we should sing his praise He should be remembered for trying his best And though always found wanting when put to the test Great courage of him we should not deny And credit him for giving it his best try  And credit him if only for taking part A sportsman in ways and a sportsman at heart ©Υπουργείο Παιδείας και Πολιτισμού

12 Champions or just Athletes? Appendix B
He is always out jogging in rain, hail or sun And every race to him is just a run fun He will never be one sports writers will recall Though that doesn’t bother him one bit at all His next run the ten-mile race on Sunday And of him a “good sport” seems a fair thing to say.
