The Olympic Games are an international sports competition that happens every four years. Many countries join in the Olympic Games. Turkey won 5 medals at the 2012 London Olympic. However, 114 sportsmen and sportswomen attended at this Olympiad. There are many causes of this failure.

The main reason is inadequate ability growth and character development. As we know, generally, people who are children get into doing sports. They learn to play sports when they are at their schools. Then, they decide which sports they want to do. If they do not know their ability and they do not know which sports they do, they will not learn to play any sports and do not succeed.

The second reason is that the government does not have enough encouragement for sports. For example, there are not gyms at many schools in Turkey. Schools which have gyms do not have enough quality such as having no swimming pools and tennis courts. Therefore, children usually play computer games instead of playing sports. They do not find which sports they are interested.

Final reason is inadequate physical education. Many schools in Turkey have physical education two hours per week. Children take the lesson over twenty five hours per week out of physical education. Doing exercises are necessary for people’s health. Therefore, hours of physical education should be increased by the government.


In conclusion, there are many causes of failure about Olympiad Games in terms of inadequate ability growth and character development, not enough encouragement and inadequate physical education. If these causes are not solved, this failure will continue.
