The 29th Olympics of New Acropolis France took place under the sun of the Perche region, in the Cour Petral.
In the program of sporting events: running races (10 000 m, 400 m, 100 m, 4×100 m relay), soccer, volleyball, table tennis, artistic gymnastics, archery, shot put – and also artistic events (songs, poems, story-telling, photography) – not to mention the unmissable petanque and chess tournaments!
Athletes and artists from the 13 Centers of New Acropolis France came together to compete, to overcome and unite, to experience successes and defeats, to strive towards excellence. An excellence that is not only athletic or aesthetic, but the excellence of the soul, by selfless and voluntary effort, the gift of oneself for one’s team, the sharing of what is most beautiful and harmonious in man and in Nature.
Enthusiasm and joy for the effort put forth closed this weekend of events, with the need, more than ever, to cultivate the Olympic spirit in our daily lives.
