“The Olympic Games”
The world’s greatest international sports games are known as the Olympic games. The Olympic idea means friendship, fraternity and cooperation among the people of the world.
The Olympic Games began in ancient Greece in 776 B.C. The games were part of a festival held every fourth year. It was a great athletic festival, including competitions in wrestling, foot racing and chariot racing, rowing and others.
The games were for men only. Greek women were forbidden not only to participate but also to watch the Olympics.
The Olympic Games had been held for about eleven hundred years, until the emperor Theodosius banned them for religious reasons in 394 A.D.
The modern Olympic Games The first modern Olympic Games were held in 1896 in Athens. In the modern Olympic Games it’s the custom to start off with the arrival of a runner carrying a lighted torch. Then in the Olympic stadium a flame is lit and it continues to burn for all the Games as a sign that peace will be kept all the year.
