Team Triumph Theme Song - Keep Your Head UP
Team Triumph has adopted the Olympic Motto
( A motto is a phrase which sums up a life philosophy or a code of conduct to follow.)

The Olympic motto is made up of three Latin words: "Citius, Altius, Fortius", which means "Faster, Higher, Stronger".

These three words encourage the athlete (or student) to give his or her best during competition (and throughout life), and to view this effort as a victory in itself.

The sense of the motto is that being first or best is not necessarily a priority, but that giving one's best and striving for personal excellence is a worthwhile goal. It can apply equally to athletes, students, and to each one of us.

The three Latin words became the Olympic motto in 1894, the date of the IOC's creation. Pierre de Coubertin proposed the motto, having borrowed it from his friend Henri Didon, a Dominican priest who taught sport to students.
