VICTORY. SUCCESS. PASSION

NIKE

Nike as a symbol of victory

Nike, also known as Victoria in Roman mythology, was the goddess of victory, fame and success.

Nike was born to the titan Pallas and the sea nymph Styx. In Greek mythology, Styx personified the flow of power and victory, which is why her daughter Nike was closely associated with these concepts.

She was often depicted as a winged goddess, usually appearing in the hand of a victorious athlete or general. Their wings symbolized rapid, victorious rise and triumph.

The Trojan War

The Trojan War was a protracted conflict between the Greeks and the city of Troy. Achilles, one of the most famous Greek heroes, played a crucial role in this war. He was known for his unparalleled bravery and strength, but also for his anger and temper.

The goddess Nike, also called Victoria in Roman mythology, was the goddess of victory and success. In many depictions she is depicted as a winged figure that brings victory.

During the Trojan War, Achilles killed the Trojan prince Hector, one of Troy's bravest warriors. After this victory, Achilles took trophies from the battle, including the famous helmet of Hector, which he wore as a symbol of his victory.

The myth of Nike and Achilles shows the close connection between the goddess of victory and the hero Achilles. Nike is often portrayed as the one who promoted Achilles' victory and glory, helping him succeed in battle.

Olympic games

One day, the gods of Olympus decided to have a competition to see which of them was the fastest runner. They chose Hermes, the god of messengers and sports, and Nike to take part in this competition.

The competition took place on Mount Olympus, and the other gods gathered to watch. At a signal from Zeus, the king of the gods, Hermes and Nike began to run. Both gods were incredibly fast and ran across Mount Olympus at breathtaking speeds.

It was a close race, but in the end Nike triumphed. She crossed the finish line with a narrow lead over Hermes. The gods rejoiced and celebrated their victory.

"The real victory is the one you win over yourself."
