[We] reach for a dream - a dream that no matter who we are, where we
come from; no matter what we look like or what hand life has dealt us;
with hard work, and discipline and dedication, we can make it if we try.
Thatís not just the American dream. That is the Olympic Spirit.
Itís the essence of the Olympic Spirit.'
