Olympic History

Walt: Explain the history of the Olympic games

Do you know about the Ancient Olympic Games? It started in 776 BC in Olympic, Greece. When the games ended a French man started the Modern Olympics in 1896. In 1900 is when they allowed women to compete in the Olympic games. There were nine different sport like athletics, swimming, javelin, cycling and others.

Now there are many different kind of sports like: Tennis, Javelin, Weight Lifting, Cycling, Swimming, Running, Chariot Racing, Boxing, Wrestling and many other things. IOC stands for International Olympics Committee, they are the organisers and governing body of the Olympics. In 1936 is the very first time they put the Olympics on the television.

This year the Olympics will be held in Rio, Brazil. I'm really excited because I can watch them on T.V doing different events.
