"Please remember that it takes more than crossing the finish line first to make a champion. A champion is more than a winner. A champion is someone who respects the rules, rejects doping, and competes in the spirit of fair play. A champion is someone who surpasses personal limits. This means all of you can be champions, regardless of your final ranking."
~Jacques Rogge (2002 Olympic Committee president in a speech at the Winter Olympics that year)
