Does the Olympics segregate countries by creating competitive environments or does it connect the world together in one event?
For years, I've been told that the Olympics bring people together for the ultimate celebration of achievement, athleticism, and patriotism. I've questioned whether or not it actually brings up other ideas such as segregation, negativity, and hatred. If In a society where we've been built up constantly succeed or you are considered a failure, which do you think is the answer? Perhaps a combination of both? Or maybe the Olympics were designed to initially celebrate top athletes, but has become something else entirely.
