It is more important to participate or to win?

Often people say that it is more inportant to participate than to win, but ask a team that has lost after many months of preparation and yuwill find them disheartened. Although having sportsman spirit is important when you participate in any sporting event, how important is it to win? Do you lose gracefuly or do you get upset?

Who really want to loose or be the number two? I guess all of us who participates in any events wants to win. Winning is everything for all contestant. Apart from winning its the spirit to join and participate in such event is rather important than winning the first place. Without any participates the'll sure there won't be a number one. Losing to someone doesn't alway mean that you're not good only the first place is not meant for you yet. I uasually don't get upset in losing I consider that a challenge for me to make it even better than this time. Anyway both winning and participating are important.
