English were competing with Spanish and French. Then English was competing with the colonists because they were breaking away, thus forming the USA.

French is used for the Olympics because it was the idea of a Frenchman, Pierre de Coubertin, to re-established the Olympics games. French and English are the two official languages of the Olympics.
There was only one person on the French olympic team fo 2008. Her name is Aine O Connor. She is cool. She won every event. She bet Usain Bolt by 99m inthe 100m sprint.
because the French did not like the way it was happening and the French side had created Olympics.
The French man who revived the Olympics is Pierre de Coubertin.
