Suggestions on how to use

This poem is made up of three parts, taken from the three words of the Olympic Motto - Citius, Altius, Fortius:

  • I. Faster
  • II. Higher
  • III. Stronger

Each part is made up of six verses (with chorus to start and/or finish)

18 speakers - 1 verse each, with whole class reading the chorus.

21 speakers - 1 verse each (for 18), plus chorus at the beginning of each part

24 speakers - 1 verse each (for 18), plus chorus at the beginning and end of each part

30 speakers - As for 24 speakers but including six extra verses provided at the end of III, made up of three winners and three losers.

 

I. Faster

Chorus

Faster, higher, stronger,

Olympic champions,  we.

Faster, higher, stronger,

That's all we want to be!

 

Runner 1:            The training's over

                          We're on the track

                          We're primed for action

                          There's no looking back.

 

Runner 2:            On your marks

                          Get set, go!

                          It's now or never

                          We can't be slow.

 

II. Higher

Chorus

Faster, higher, stronger,

Olympic champions,  we.

Faster, higher, stronger,

That's all we want to be!

 

Gymnast 1:         Poised at last

                         To take to the floor

                         Hours of practice

                         Muscles sore.

 

Gymnast 2:         A perfect performance

                         A dazzling show

                         Of grace and elegance

                         And lines that flow.

III. Stronger

Chorus

Faster, higher, stronger,

Olympic champions,  we.

Faster, higher, stronger,

That's all we want to be!

 

Swimmer:           What does it take

                         To swim at great speed?

                         How does it feel

                         To take the lead?

Diver:                  What does it take

                          To dive off that board?

                          How does it feel

                          To go straight as a sword?
