Quote Of The Day
“They had proved themselves to be, in the motto of the Olympics, ‘the fastest, highest, strongest’ of their generation – the Mo Farahs, Jessica Ennis-Hills and Adam Peatys of their day – but their athletic achievements were no defence when war broke out between the great European powers. One by one they were cut down, their Olympic ideals no defence against the machine guns, mines and bombs of modern mechanised warfare.”
– The Telegraph writer Patrick Sawer, reviewing a book by Nigel McCrery titled, The Extinguished Flame, which tells the stories of Olympians who died fighting in World War I.
