Concept 1: Different Countries, One Goal
In this concept, I want to show how different countries can become similar in their persuit of a common goal. Size, location, politics and customs often do not play a part in obtaining a medal. Training, participating and excelling in the olympic games can happen for an athlete from any country.
Concept 2: Olympics Rings
In this concept, i want to show how the rings are symbolic. The five ring colors of blue, yellow, black, green and red represented the five continents who participate in the Olympics. those colors along with the color white which is the background color, appear on all the national flags of the world.
Concept 3: Olympics Medals
In this concept, I want to show the goal of competing athletes- an olympic medal. The gold medal is the highest prize that participants want to bring home to their countries. Silver and bronze medals are also desired.

Sgt. 1st Class James T. Graves is all smiles as he holds the American flag up after winning the bronze medal in the Men’s Skeet competition at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia, on Sept. 23, 2000. Graves is one of fifteen U.S. military athletes competing in the 2000 Olympic games as members of the U.S. Olympic team. In addition to the 15 competing athletes there are eight alternates and five coaches representing each of the four services in various venues. Graves is attached to the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit, Fort Benning, Ga. DoD photo by Tech. Sgt. Rick Sforza, U.S. Air Force. (Released)
Concept 4: Sports
In this concept, I want to show how the summer and winter olympics differ by the sports which are included in their respected seasons. Both summer and winter olympics have indoor and outdoor events.

Concept 5: Olympics Ceremonies
In this concept, I want to show the opening, closing and presentation of the olympic medal ceremonies. These will include the different teams, flags of all nations, grand theatrical productions and the lighting of the Olympics torch. These have become an important ritual for the hosting nation.
