By: Bercle George

Olympics is the biggest sports gathering event in the world which happens once every four years and covers winter and summer games. It is an international event and hundreds of countries throughout the globe participate in the games.

If you want to learn more about this prestigious even- when, where, and how this started. Here are some interesting facts about it:

The first Olympic game was done in the year 776 BC in Olympia, Greece. The games were held in Greece till 393 AD. Eventually in the year1896, Pierre Fredy, Baron de Coubertin, a French nobleman revived the Olympic games which gave way to the birth of the Modern Olympic Games. From 1896, Olympic games were held once in four years and terminated during the World War 1 and 2. After the war, Olympic games resumed up to the present. In fact, the next Olympic games (2008) will be held in China, in the city of Beijing.

2004 Athens Olympics

The United States dominated once again in 2004 Athens Olympics and that is the reason why a lot of people are asking on how many gold medals did the U.S. women win in the Olympics (Athens)? I can't remember how many but the US garnered 103 medals all in all in Athens. Will the US still be dominating in the Upcoming Beijing Olympics- its closest rival for the top Olympic rank? The US will probably be working double to remain on the top rank considering their closest competitor has its psychological advantage since they are the host country in 2008 Olympics.

2012 Olympic Games

The 2008 Olympic games will be held in London, England and at present, the Country is preparing for this biggest sports event. The Sports Arena is already showcased, the 2012 Olympic logo design has been shown in public, the accommodation for visitors and other important stuffs.

If you do not live in London for sure you are glad that the the 2012 Olympics will be held in your country, however it is probably true that other parts of the country will not benefit as much as those situated within the vicinity of London. What the politicians do to deal with this bone of contention remains to be seen.

Whatever your point of view, be sure that the London 2012 Olympics will be a great spectacle for all to see. With all those tops sports people and athletes performing at the top level in the world it will be a great event that the world will be focusing on - the 2012 London Olympics.

The Olympics gather up the greatest humans with the greatest skills, ability and agility and test them against fellow man to see who claims top honors and genetics in athletic ability of all. There is probably no larger and greater contest of strength and will all put together in one place than the Olympic Games.
