The History of the Olympic Games

The Olympic Games have a very long history. They began in 777 BC in Greece and took place every four years for nearly twelve centuries at Olympia. They included many different kinds of sports: running, boxing, wrestling, and others. All the cities in Greece sent their best athletes to Olympia to compete in the Games. For the period of the Games all the wars stopped. So the Olympic Games became the symbol of peace and friendship.

In 394 AD the Games were abolished. In 1896 first modern Olympic Games took place. Of course, the competitions were held in Greece to symbolize the continuation of the centuries-old tradition.

In 1896 the International Olympic Committee was set up. It decided upon the program of the Games, the number of the participants and the city-host for the Games. Over 150 countries are represented in the   International Olympic Committee now.

Summer and winter Games are held separately. There are always several cities wishing to host the Games. The most suitable is selected by the International Olympic Committee. After that the city-host of the Games starts preparations for the competitions, constructs new sport facilities, stadiums, hotels, press centers. Thousands of athletes, journalists and guests come to the Games, and it takes great efforts to arrange everything. There is always an interesting cultural program of concerts, exhibitions, festivals for each Games.

Russia joined the Olympic movement in 1952. Since then it has won a lot of gold, silver and bronze medals. In 1980 Moscow hosted the 22 Olympic Games. In 2014 the Olympic Games will be held in Sochi.

Now find the translation of the phrases in the text:

  • каждые четыре года;
  • около 12 веков;
  • они включали в себя;
  • лучшие атлеты;
  • все войны прекращались;
  • символ мира и дружбы;
  • первые современные Олимпийские игры;
  • проводятся отдельно;
  • желающие принять участие;
  • новое спортивное оборудование.

Now find the answers to the questions in the text:

  • What sports did the Olympic Games include?
  • Did the wars stop at the Olympic Games?
  • When did the modern Olympic Games start?
  • What does the International Olympic Committee do?
  • Was the text interesting?

Now you know the history of the Olympic Games. I am sure you can be good sportsmen.
