The Olympic Games

olympic-torch-greeceThe Olympics is one of the most well known tournaments in the world. Ever wondered where it came from? It came from Greece. People came from all around to see the competition. The Olympics started because people thought the gods liked it. The winner of each event got a laurel wreath, which was basically a crown of leaves. One time, a runner lost his loincloth and kept running. Then the Greeks decided the men that competed in events in the Olympics would run without clothing. I know – disgusting! The Greeks held the Olympics every four years, just like we do today.
