Olympics end with ritual sacrifice of losing athletes

rio

Yet another Olympics has come to an end with athletes sacrificed on the alter of athletic perfection.

Every four years athletes struggle to obtain medals in order to court favor with the gods and permit their existence another four years.

The fallen athletes serve as a reminder and motivation to current and future Olympic champions to dig deep and give it their all.

While some find this practice antiquated, and continue to pressure the Olympics committee to provide all contestants with participation medals, others find this traditional act a refreshing reminder of a better time when losers weren’t coddled and comforted in the wake of failure.
