Lesson 2 & 3: Modern Olympics - Timeline

|The Olympic Games (French: Jeux olympiques) are an important international event featuring summer and winter sports. Olympic Games are held every leap year (every |

|four years), with Summer and Winter Olympic Games taking turns. Each seasonal games happens every four years. Originally, the ancient Olympic Games were held |

|in Ancient Greece at Olympia. The first games were in 776 BC. They were held every four years up until the 5th century AD. |

|The first "modern" Olympics happened in 1896 in Athens, Greece. People choose to play in the Olympics to represent the country they are from. |

|Over time the Olympics have become bigger. In old times, women were not allowed to compete, but now everyone is allowed. The Winter Games were created for ice and |

|snow sports. The Paralympic Games were created for athletes with physical disabilities. As well, the Olympics became bigger with the addition of the Youth Olympic |

|Games for teenage athletes. World War I and World War II led to the cancellation of the 1916, 1940, and 1944 Games. Covid19 has lead to the cancellation of the 2020 |

|Olympic Games due to be held in Tokyo. As the decision-making body, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) is responsible for choosing the host city for each |

|Olympic Games. The IOC is also responsible for choosing what sports are in the games. |

|The celebration of the Games includes many rituals and symbols, such as Olympic flag and torch, as well as the opening and closing ceremonies. The first, second, and|

|third place finishers in each event receive, respectively, gold, silver, and bronze medals. |
