Olympic History

Do you know when the Ancient Olympic Games started’’?’’
It  began  in  776  BC in Olympia. There was only one event, ‘’with,’’  the 200 yard sprint.

The games were a religious festival for the god Zeus. Only men could compete in the nudeand it was  held every  four  years.Women’s were not allowed to watch the men’s compete in the nudeand.

In  391 AD Rome invaded Greece.  Two years later the Olympic games were abolished in 336 AD.  A French-man  re-started the Modern Olympics in 1896.

Four years later in 1900 Women were allowed to compete in the olympic games. In 1936 first olympics TV then it becomes the world wide event. IOC - International Olympic Committee look after the olympic games.
