l
Ancient Olympic Games in Greece
  • The Olympics back in 776 B.C. were a little weird
    compared to todays Olympics. The women and young
    women couldnt participate in the Olympics
    because of unstated facts, they couldnt even
    watch because for some reason the men
    participated nude.
  • The games were a lot different compared to
    todays. There were 24-stade races, races similar
    to the races run by boys. In the afternoon there
    was wrestling, boxing, and judo. The rules
    forbade only biting and gouging your opponents
    eyes. The most dangerous sport there was was the
    chariot race, 50 chariots would race each other
    and some of them would get overturned or locked
    wheels or even head on collisions. So now you
    know that ancient Olympics were a lot different
    that todays.

Modern Olympic Times
The first modern games were held in 1896 in
Athens, Greece. Although figure skating hockey
had been events in previous Games, the first
official Olympic Winter Games to feature these
events was in 1924.In the first half of the
twentieth century
The site of the ancient Olympic Games lay buried
until an archaeologist named Richard Chandler
unearthed it in 1766.Another change is the faces
of the competitors. In 1900, women began
competing in the Games.

Opening Ceremonies
  • Opening Ceremonies
  • The opening of the Olympic Games is very special.
    Lighting the torch, and the competitors entering
    is extreme. The flagbearer dips the flag in
    honor of the country. The Opening Ceremonies have
    continued as a grand highlight of the Games. As
    you probably know, the Games began in Greece.
    That means that the Greek competitors get to
    enter first. At the end of the Opening
    Ceremonies, there are a display of grand
    fireworks.

6
The Olympic Torch
  • The tradition of lighting an Olympic torch in
    Olympia, Greece, has been of the modern Games for
    many years. At the Opening Ceremonies of the
    Games, the torch is carried into the stadium. He
    or she tilts the torch to light the large flame
    that will burn throughout the 16 days of the
    Games.

7
The Olympic Motto In Latin the Olympic motto
is Citius, Altius, Fortius In English it
is Swifter, Higher, Stronger
8
Olympic Creed
  • The important thing in the Olympic games is
    not to win, but to take part, just as the
    important thing in life is not the triumph but
    the struggle the essential thing is not to have
    conquered, but to have fought well.
  • -Baron Pierre de Coubertin
  • Founder of the modern Olympic games

9
The Olympic Symbol
  • The five rings, the familiar symbol of the
    Olympic Games, were discovered by archaeologists
    In modern Olympic Games, the rings on either end
    indicating the year of the Games and three rings
    in the middle representing the years in between.
    The rings colors are blue, yellow, black, green,
    and red. The five rings stand for the five
    continents North and South America, Europe,
    Asia, Africa, and Australia.
