The Olympic Symbol : Five coloured rings. Passion, Body, Water, Technic, Energy. And four years to reach this very unique and particular moment when you exceed yourself for the big event.

What does the athlete experience durig these four years preceding the Olympic Games? Which tension and pressures, which mutations does the body go through during this time of intense preparation and developement both physical and mental?

"Citrus, Altius, Fortius". The eloquent olympic motto proclaims in a ceremonial latin, "Faster, Higher, Stronger". It's all about breaking out beyond human nature in this very moment when the energy fromthe heart explodes.

But more than competition, isn't it the essential point of this race for excellence, the inner-fight for self-transcendence?
