Introduction:

The Olympic Games are a major international event of summer and winter sports, in which thousands of athletes compete in a wide variety of events. The games are currently held every two years, with Summer and Winter Olympic Games alternating. Originally, the ancient Olympic Games were held in Olympia, Greece, from the 8th century BC to the 5th century AD…. The celebration of the games encompasses many rituals and symbols, such as the Olympic flag and torch, as well as the opening and closing ceremonies…. The first, second, and third place finishers in each event receive gold, silver or bronze Olympic medals, respectively. The games have grown in scale to the point that nearly every nation is represented. – Wikipedia.com
