This song "One Dream" by Sarah McLauchlan is a theme song from the Vancouver 2010 winter olympics. I couldn't resist adding it here. Every athlete goes to the games with a dream! We have the luxury of sharing it by cheering them on!
Revived from ancient origins, modern Olympics are haunted by the ideals of that primitive and violent time. The original Olympics began in Olympia in 776 B. They celebrated the many gods by staging violent athletic competitions (deaths were common).
