Olympics from the Beginning
The Olympic Games can be traced back all the way to 776 BC! It is said that the games were dedicated to the Olympian gods. They continued for almost 12 centuries, until Emperor Theodosios banned them in 393 A.D. Many years later the modern Olympics restarted the tradition in 1896 in Athens, Greece. The games featured only 280 participants from 13 nations who competed in 43 events! This year there will be 306 events (more than seven times the amount there was in 1896!) in 28 different sports, and with every thing from badminton to wrestling, there is a sport to enjoy for everyone!
