Olympic history

Do you know about the ancient olympic games?
The ancient olympic games began in 776 BC in Olympia. There was one  event the 200 yard dash. Only men could compete.the games were a religious festival.

In 391 AD Rome invaded Greece. Two years later the olympic games were abolished.

In 1896 a french man re built the Modern Olympic games. Four years later in 1900, women were allowed to compete in the olympic games. In 1936 was the first time the olympic games were on television The games became a world--wide event. A French men formed a committee the International Olympic committee  or IOC for short it was made to protect the Olympics.

 The games this year are being held in rio Brazil 2016 and I think usain bolt is going to win the most gold medals for running. Also I think NZs gonna win the most gold medals and jemacia
