Question 28: Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C or Don your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions from 28-34
The Marathon has always had a prominent place in the hearts and minds of athletes. It represents the ultimate athletic effort —where the human body, mind and soul are tested to their limits.The Athens Marathon is the ultimate Marathon experience, recreating each year the incredible run that started it all 2,500 years ago. Whether you’re a runner or not, we hope you’ll take a few minutes to explore this site and learn more about the Athens Marathon, and why it has such a special place in the hearts of runners throughout the world.
Why the Athens Marathon is on So Many Runners’ Bucket Lists By Paul Samaras,many historians and philosophers consider the Battle of Marathon in 490 B.C. one of the most significant battles in human history; but the battle is perhaps now more famous as the inspiration for the modern marathon race. In order to understand the event’s importance to western culture, we need to go back to 508 B.C. Athens when the idea of democracy was in its infancy . Back then, democracy was a revolutionary new concept that gave the individual certain freedoms, a voice in how the power of rule would apply – “rule of the people”. This concept sparked new ideas and inspiration in Greek society and culture, and gave the people freedom to create, to be rewarded, and to be recognized for their achievements. Systematic thought that included the disciplines of biology, geometry, philosophy, and physics emerged. The Greek people introduced the literary forms of epic and lyric poetry, theater, tragedy, and comedy. In their pursuit of order and proportion, the Greeks created an ideal of beauty and perfection. At this point, democracy had not been tested or fully established.
Then came the Battle of Marathon in 490 B.C. The battle was fought by free men with a new concept; freedom against suppression and slavery. John Stuart Mill, one of the most influential English-speaking philosophers of the 19th century, famously suggested that “the Battle of Marathon, even as an event in British history, is more important than the Battle of Hastings.” The Battle of Marathon is significant because it allowed democracy to develop and establish itself. If the battle had been lost, this new idea of democracy would have vanished and would not have been documented in history. There would not have been a second battle and another test at the battle of Thermopylae. After the Athenian victory at the Battle of Marathon, Athens reached prosperous new heights. Democracy blossomed and became the foundation of western civilization. L. Siegfried, a German philosopher said it this way: “When Greeks were fighting at Marathon against the spiritually unconnected mass of Persians, they were fighting as people who had clear awareness of the right for a free political life. The consciousness of mankind was born at Marathon. We, the people of the West, must always kneel respectfully to the place where human dignity was established.” After the battle, legend has it that the Greek messenger Pheidippides ran from the battlefield at Marathon to Athens in order to relay news of the victory. He only said, “We were victorious!” and collapsed and died from exhaustion.
The run became the inspiration for the Marathon event, introduced at the 1896 Modern Olympics. The original epic run of Pheidippides continues to inspire runners today. Today, athletes who run the Athens Marathon will be running in the same footsteps as Pheidippides. But when they run the original historical course, they run not only in the footsteps of ancient Greek heroes and legends, they also run in the birthplace of democracy.

The Jules Rimet Cup, originally named Victory, was awarded to FIFA World Cup™ winners until 1970. The third FIFA President, Jules Rimet, passed the vote to initiate the first global football championship in 1929. A year later, he would be awarding the Cup to the Uruguay team, the first World Cup winners in history. The Cup was renamed in honour of Jules Rimet after the Second World War.Designed by French sculptor Abel Lafleur, the Cup depicted the ancient Greek goddess of victory, holding a decagonal cup aloft. The statuette, weighing 3.8kg, was made of gold-plated sterling silver on a base of lapis lazuli. The trophy was nicknamed "Golden Goddess."
On the gold plaques affixed to each of the four sides of the Cup's base, the names of the nations were engraved that had won the World Cups from 1930 to 1970: Uruguay (1930, 1950), Italy (1934, 1938), Germany (1954), England (1966) and Brazil (1958, 1962, 1970). Having won its third FIFA World Cup, the 9th edition in Mexico in June 1970, the Brazil team earned the right to keep the Cup in perpetuity, according to the then-current FIFA regulations.
It was only fair that the Cup was named after Rimet, the third President of FIFA, who had stood at the helm of FIFA for 33 years, following his appointment in 1921. It is to Jules Rimet that the world owes its first global football tournament. He had negotiated long and hard with top government officials, football federations and national teams. Rimet's obsession with the idea kept him on track until the first World Cup materialized in Uruguay in 1930. While leading FIFA, Rimet succeeded in boosting football's popularity dramatically worldwide, establishing the national team tournament as the premier four-year football highlight, and strengthening FIFA's authority. FIFA listed 56 member nations in 1954, when Rimet resigned from the office of President, nearly a triple of its early 1920s membership.
The Jules Rimet Cup embarked on its maiden voyage to Uruguay aboard a transatlantic liner, the Conte Verde, in 1930. Interestingly, the legendary Russian opera singer Pyotr Shaliapin also travelled aboard the Conte Verde for his South American tour that year. The Cup was held by 1938 winners Italy when World War II broke out. Italy was no place for a valuable trophy amid the tumult of the pre-war months, so Ottorino Barassi, President of the Italian Football Federation, decided to hide it in a way that would look like a theft. He secretly removed the cup from the bank vault, and hid it in a shoebox under his bed, hoping that the Nazis would not find it there. The cup was saved and, come 1950, awarded to the Uruguay team, the first post-war winners, again.On 20 March 1966, four months before the 1966 FIFA World Cup™ in England, the Jules Rimet Cup was stolen while on public display at Westminster Central Hall, despite 24-hour security – an event which caused great uproar. London's entire police force was mobilized in search of the thief, who had demanded a ransom of 15,000 pounds.
