The Olympic Games. Beginning in Ancient Greece, they are now the world’s largest sporting event. Held in Olympia, Greece from the 8th century BCE to the 4th century CE, they were held every four years. They were grand and holy events for which entire wars were put on hold. The ancient Olympics came to an end around 400 CE when the Romans gained power over the Greeks.
The modern Olympics began in 1894, when Baron Pierre de Coubertin founded the International Olympic Committee. In 1896 the first modern Olympic Games were hosted in Athens, Greece. The 20th and 21st centuries have brought major change to the games. With the addition of Winter Olympic Games, Paralympic Games, Youth Olympic Games, the Deaflympics, and the Special Olympics being added (you don’t need to read all those btw, just do as many as you think is necessary). Today, the Olympics are hosted every two years, alternating between Summer and Winter Olympic Games.
