TRUCE, OLYMPIC
From the 9th century B.C, a truce was decreed so that the athletes and pilgrims could get to the sanctuary of Olympia without danger. During the reinstatement of the modern games, the humanist Pierre de Coubertin introduced the idea of an Olympic truce so that the conflicts in regions at war would cease for the duration of the games.Whilst this idea has often been accepted, it has not always been respected.The fact remains that for the 2004 games, Greece should not miss out on the opportunity of inaugurating an international Olympic truce centre. 180 countries have already backed the idea of a truce during the games.Indeed, this accord inspired the American and Cuban national Olympic committees to come together and the North and South Korean athletes to parade side by side during the Sydney games. The latter was a new step towards peace between two countries that have been at war for more than 50 years.
