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

Speakers

I. Speed Skater 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6

II. Figure Skater 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6

III. Speed Skater, Ski Jumper, Ice Hockey Player, Curler, Gold Medalist and Skier

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 -  I verse each (18) plus choruses after each verse of I and II split between remainder.

 

I.Faster

Chorus:

Faster, higher, stronger,

Olympic champions, we.

Faster, higher, stronger,

That's all we want to be!

 

Speed Skater 1:           The training's over

                                  We're on the ice track

                                  We're primed for action

                                  There's no looking back.

 

Speed Skater 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!

 

Figure Skater 1:           Poised at last

                                 To take to the ice floor

                                 Hours of practice

                                 Muscles sore.

 

Figure Skater 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!

 

Speed Skater:              What does it take

                                  To skate at great speed?

                                  How does it feel

                                  To take the lead?

 

Ski Jumper:                  What does it take

                                   To jump off that board?

                                   How does it feel

                                   To go straight as a sword?
