Anonymous asked: hows your knee?
It’s okay. I have completely quit tumbling after reinjuring it so that means next times it happens I’ll have a total knee replacement…

The Birth of the Olympic Rings
The founder of the International Olympic Committee, Pierre de Coubertin, also created the Olympic Rings. Coubertin wrote a letter on July 15, 1913, and drew and colored the Rings on it by hand. This letter, pictured here, was the first time the Rings had ever been seen.
Soon after, the Rings made their debut on their first flag. It was made by the department store Le Bon Marché in Paris in 1913 based on a design by Coubertin. The flag was presented to the Paris Congress in 1914.
Pictured is another very early Olympic flag. This one was raised in Alexandria, Egypt, on the 5th of April 1914 (100 years ago today). It was in Chatby stadium at a sporting event commemorating 20 years since the founding of the modern Olympic Games.
“The Olympic flag […] has a white background with five interlaced rings in the centre: blue, yellow, black, green and red […]. This design is symbolic; it represents the five continents of the world, united by Olympism, while the six colours are those that appear on all the national flags of the world at the present time.” - Pierre de Coubertin
