Everybody knows about the Olympic spirit. All Olympics are based on the same rules and ideas.

The Olympic Oath
"In the name of all the judges and officials, I promise that we shall officiate in these Olympic Games with complete impartiality, respecting and abiding by the rules which govern them in the true spirit of sportsmanship.“

On the other hand, every Olympic city has the goal, to make the event special, create their own spirit, their own topics and their own memories.

There is one symbol which shows the diversity of all Olympic Games: The Olympic Torch

At the headquarters of the IOC (International Olympic Committee) located in Lausanne, Switzerland, is the Olympic Museum where you can see all of the original Olympic torches presented in a circle. I think the torches show the DIVERSITY of the Olympic Games.
