The thing that all of these sports & major events have in common is that there is a clear cut winner.
1 person or 1 team becomes the champion, and all the other players, entrants & team members strive to win their spot next year so they can be victorious.
That’s what competition is about and it makes children, high school kids, college athletes and adults work that much harder to strive for greatness all year round.
The 6th place person or team in any of these games & professional sporting events does not and should not receive a “participation trophy.” Children & young adults should not get a trophy for just showing up. That sets a horrible precedent for the real world.
When they grow up, and get a job, their boss will be extremely disappointed if they just show up, and don’t strive to be the best sales rep, or work the most hours, to try to be employee of the month, because they learned in school that they should be rewarded just for participating.
It’s ok to lose, if it makes you stronger.
It’s ok to not be as skilled, if it makes you more determined.
And It’s ok to get 6th place, as long as it inspires you to work harder to be the best version of yourself for next time...
