With the Paralympics and the Olympic Games since 1998, there has been a drastic change in the way people track the progress of the athletes. The first thing that happened was the introduction of colored ribbon in the stadium. Initially, the color of the ribbon used to be blue but after the launch of the Paralympics, all the athletes and coaches were provided with blue uniforms. The trend carried on till the inception of Olympics.
The color blue is associated with all the elements of the Olympics including the logo of the games. As a result, whenever you see any athlete wearing a blue uniform, you can be sure that he/she is participating in the Olympic games. Another factor which is credited to the Olympic Games since 1998 is the addition of music to the games. Previously, the musical score of the Paralympic games was quite different from the modern music score.
Music has now played a vital role in the Olympic games since they were introduced. For instance, the hip-hop dance routine which was popularized by Usher was first showcased at the 1996 Olympics. Today, hip hop dance forms are majorly used during the qualification events for the Olympics. Moreover, if you go through the official website of the IAAF, you will find out that the women’s marathon event has been added to the list of events for the Beijing games. Not only this, in the women’s 10,000m race, besides the competitor’s gold and silver medals, the athletes will also be adorned with various gold Olympic medal pins.
