The Olympic Games

  

 

At the end of the First World War, which had interrupted the four yearly Olympic Games, the seventh edition took place in Anvers in 1920.The Olympic flag was officially raised for the fir*st time and the Olympic oath was introduced:

 

 

"In the name of all the competitors I promise that we shall take part in these Olympic Games, respecting and abiding by the rules which govern them, in the true spirit of sportsmanship, for the glory of sport and the honour of our teams."

 

This was the first time that Monegasque athletes participated in the Games, thus commencing the first chapter in a long and marvellous story..
