Theme: The Olympic Spirit: Capturing the Moment

This event occurred on
March 31, 2012
1:00pm - 3:30pm EDT
(UTC -4hrs)
Greenwich, Connecticut
United States

Olympic Spirit captures the moments of high drama and emotion experienced by Olympians and fans throughout the world.

What is the truth behind that moment? How do you instill, train, learn, and motivate the champion within? What is the journey behind that moment?

"Olympism is a philosophy of life, exalting and combining in a balanced whole the qualities of body, will and mind. Blending sport with culture and education, Olympism seeks to create a way of life based on the joy of effort, the educational value of a good example, and respect for universal fundamental ethical principles." - Olympic Charter

TedxYouth@Bruce will bring together the vision, philosophy, and creed of the Olympic spirit through inspirational speakers.

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.
- Olympic Creed
