In 1952, a twelve year old Chinese schoolboy named John Ian Wing, who had just started at Swinburne Junior Technical School in Melbourne, wanted to change the Olympic Closing Ceremony. The boy thought the Closing Ceremony was very boring and he wanted to come up with an idea, which would make it more exciting. After a few months, he gave up the idea as it was affecting his schoolwork.
A boy's 'idea'. "Let there be One Nation"
Unbeknown to him, a few years later in 1956, the boy actually changed the procedure of the Closing Ceremony forever. His 'idea' brought all the countries of the world together as One Nation thus, fulfilling Baron Pierre de Coubertin's dream.
