Olympic history

Hook: Do you know about the Ancient olympic Games? The Olympic Games began in 776 BC in Olympia.  There was only one event and that was the 200 yard dash. It was only men that competed in the nude.The Olympics was a religious festival in honor of Zeus and they celebrate every  four years.
In 391 AD Rome invaded Greece. Two years later Rome abolished the games.

In 1896 a French man  re-started the Olympic games in Athens, Greece.four years later In 1936 first olympics television then it became world wide event. And the Frenchman formed a committee the international Olympic committee or ioc for short and it was made to protect the Olympics.

The Olympic games are being held in Rio Brazil 2016 and I hope that New Zealand win’s most of this year's event’s.
