Olympics Facts

Modern Olympic Games were created in 1894, by a French educator Baron Pierre de Coubertin. However, Olympic Games date back to 776 B.C when they were celebrated as a religious festival. Around 393 A.D games were canceled because they represented pagan festival and celebration of the Greek God Zeus. Ancient Greek athletes performed naked that is why today we have the word gymnasium, “gymnos” in Greek means naked. The five interconnected Olympic rings represent the five significant continents of the world: Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe and Oceania. China won the most gold medals at the 2008 Beijing Games and today’s gold medals are silver covered with a thin coat of gold.
