!Why! were the FIRST Olympics held?


Who won the all around women's gymnastic in the 2004 Olympics?

A french person called De Couberton who was interested in sport studied Greece History and English Public Schools. These schools used sport for Social Contol (getting the boys to behave) and Muscular christianity (teaching them morals through sport). He liked the idea of using sport for peace, harmony and teaching morals. After looking at the ancient olympics of Greece he reintrodued them in 1896 in Athens Greece to join people together through Sport.

The ancient greek Games were held in Olympia hence the name Olympics. They were to worship and honour the Greek Gods.
