84TEACHING VALUES SECTION 4 THE FIVE EDUCATIONAL VALUES OF OLYMPISM " I didn't have to think. Our policy of the Norwegian team, and my policy, is that we should help each other. We should compete on the same ground. Everybody should have two skis and two poles." For Håkensmoen, lending Renner a spare pole was a simple act. To others, it's an example of the Olympic spirit that sometimes gets lost in the quest for medals. FOR DISCUSSION What seemed to be more important to the Norwegian coach than winning an Olympic medal? The Norwegian team finished fourth in the race – with no medal. Is it fair to help another team if they will beat you out of a medal? READING Fair Play on the High Seas It was Saturday, 24 September, 1988. Lawrence Lemieux, a Canadian, was in second place in his small yacht during the Olympic competitions of the Seoul Olympic Games. The race was taking place in confusing high winds and rough waves off the coast of Korea. These were conditions that Larry knew well. He was an experienced rough water sailor. He was almost in a position to challenge the leader for the gold medal. Suddenly, out of the corner of his eye he saw an empty boat in the waves. A man was in the cold waters near the empty boat and waving his arms. An unexpected wave had flipped him out of his boat. Without hesitation, Lemieux veered from the course to come up beside the drowning sailor. He pulled the man from the water. Then he headed his yacht toward shore to get help. After the rescue, Lawrence re- entered the race, but he finished well behind the leaders. In the true spirit of Olympic competition, Lawrence gave up his chance to win the race in order to assist a fellow competitor. In recognition of his action, the International Olympic Committee presented Lawrence with a special Olympic award. Lemieux was both happy and surprised when the media fussed over what he says any sailor would have done. Said Lemieux," The first rule of sailing is, if you see somebody in trouble, you help him." FOR DISCUSSION What is the similarity between the Norwegian coach's ideas and Lemieux's ideas about winning. Do you agree with them? Why or why not? Left Turin 2006: Sarah Renner ( CAN) competes during the Women's Cross Country 10km. Below Left Norwegian ski coach Bjørnar Håkensmoen.

TEACHING VALUES AN OLYMPIC EDUCATION TOOLKIT SECTION 4 THE FIVE EDUCATIONAL VALUES OF OLYMPISM TEACHING VALUES85 ACTIVITYSHEET Create a conversation that you think might have taken place between Monti and Nash. Then role play it. Tell this story as if you were Tony Nash or Robin Dixon. What do you think they would say? Write the ski story as if you were a TV reporter watching the events of this race. Write the story as if you were the Norwegian girl that Sarah beat for a medal. Write the high seas story as if you were a TV or radio reporter watching the events of this race. Write or tell fair play stories from your club, school or community. Then pretend that you are reporters and either record a radio or TV interview playing the roles of the people in the story, or you could actually interview the people in a real life fair play story from your club, school or community. CHECKLIST ACTIVITY 1 ACTIVITY 2 ACTIVITY 3 ACTIVITY 4 1 2 3 TO TALK ABOUT These are stories of fair play in individual sports. Often fair play issues erupt in team sports like football or ice hockey. Explore the reasons why team sports have more fair play issues. How do sports organisations try to control these situations? Are their efforts successful? Why or why not? Debate the following topic:" The losers always win the fair play trophy." 4
