lets start from the beginning when the Olympics started. The first Olympic games took place in 776 B.C in Olympia, Greece it only lasted one day it started with only one event the 200 yard dash but then more of them came such as the long jump, javelin, horse racing, pankraton and more.
The Olympics ended in 391 AD A christen roman emperor Theodosius banned pagan practices ending the Olympics
In 1896 the modern Olympic games started. They bring international athletes together.
Why I think the Olympics are more than sports I think the Olympics are more then sports because in SQ 2 what is olympisim It says the Olympics excellence, friendship, and respect. So the Olympics want the athletes to think that it's not all about medals.
