it is sweet and proper to be a champion.

French translation:Dulce et decorum est victor esse.
Explanation:
This is a play on "Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori" (It is sweet and honorable (or proper, fitting, etc.) to die for one's country). Since it won't make sense to anyone who doesn't know the Latin anyway, why not leave it there?
