Citius Altius Fortius


"This killing of Israeli athletes is an act of war. And if there's one place war doesn't belong.....it's here. From seven-hundred-and-seventy-six B.C. to three-hundred-and-ninety-three A.D. your fellow Olympians laid down their arms to take part in these Games. They understood there was more honor in out-running a man than in killing him. l hope the competition will resume. And if it does, you must not think that running or throwing or jumping is frivolous. The Games were once your fellow Olympians' answer to war. Competition, not conquest. Now they must be your answer."

- Donald Sutherland, Without Limits
