History of Olympics
Olympics, an athletic festival that originated in ancient Greece and was revived in the late 19th century. Before the 1970s, the Games were officially limited to competitors with amateur status, but in the 1980s many events were opened to professional athletes.
Currently, the Games are open to everyone, including the best professional basketball and football (soccer) athletes.
The ancient Olympic Games included several of the sports that are now part of the Summer Games program, which has at times included events in up to 32 different sports. In 1924, the Winter Games were sanctioned for winter sports. The Olympic Games have become the most important sporting competition in the world.
It remains a matter of debate how far back in history organized athletic competitions were held, but it is reasonably true that they occurred in Greece almost 3,000 years ago.
No matter how old its origin, at the end of the 6th century BC. C. at least four Greek sports festivals, sometimes called “classical games”, had reached great importance: the Olympic Games, celebrated in Olympia; the Pythian Games in Delphi; the Nemea Games in Nemea; and the Isthmus Games, held near Corinth. Later, similar festivals were held in nearly 150 cities as far away as Rome, Naples, Odessus, Antioch, and Alexandria.
Of all the games held in Greece, the Olympics were the most famous. Held every four years between August 6 and September 19, they held such an important place in Greek history that in late antiquity historians measured time by the interval between them: an Olympiad.
The Olympic Games, like almost all Greek games, were an intrinsic part of a religious festival. They were celebrated in honor of Zeus at Olympia by the city-state of Elis in the northwestern Peloponnese.
The first Olympic champion on record was Coroebus de Elis, a cook who won the sprint race in 776 BC. Notions that the Olympic Games began long before 776 BC. C. is based on myths, not historical evidence. According to a legend, for example, the Games were founded by Heracles, son of Zeus and Alcmena.
The Modern Olympic
The ideas and work of various people led to the creation of the modern Olympic Games. The best known architect of the modern Games was Pierre, Baron de Coubertin, born in Paris on New Year’s Day 1863.
Family tradition pointed to a military career or possibly politics, but at the age of 24 Coubertin decided that his future it was in education. especially physical education. In 1890 he traveled to England to meet Dr. William Penny Brookes, who had written some articles on education that caught the attention of the French. Brookes had also tried for decades to revive the ancient Olympic Games, taking the idea from a series of modern Greek Olympics held in Athens beginning in 1859.
The Greek Olympics were founded by Evangelis Zappas, who, in turn, took the idea from Panagiotis Soutsos. , a Greek poet who was the first to call for a modern revival and began promoting the idea in 1833.
Brookes’s first British Olympiad, held in London in 1866, was a success, with many spectators and good athletes in attendance.
But his later attempts were less successful and were beset by public apathy and opposition from rival sports groups. Rather than give up, in the 1880s, Brookes began advocating for the founding of the international Olympics in Athens.
When Coubertin wanted to talk to Brookes about physical education, Brookes talked more about the Olympic revivals and showed him documents related to the Greek and British Olympics.
He also showed Coubertin newspaper articles about his own proposal for the international Olympics. On November 25, 1892, at a meeting of the Union des Sports Athlétiques in Paris, without mentioning Brookes and these earlier modern Olympics, Coubertin himself championed the idea of reviving the Olympics and proposed his desire for a new era in international sport when he said:
Let’s export our rowers, our runners, our fencers to other lands. That is the true free trade of the future; and the day it enters Europe, the cause of peace will have received a new and strong ally.
He then asked his audience to assist him in “the splendid and beneficial task of reviving the Olympics.”
The speech produced no appreciable activity, but Coubertin reiterated his proposal for an Olympic revival in Paris in June 1894 at a conference on international sport attended by 79 delegates representing 49 organizations from 9 countries.
Coubertin himself wrote that, with the exception of his co-workers Dimítrios Vikélas of Greece, who was to be the first president of the International Olympic Committee, and Professor William M. Sloane of the United States, of the College of New Jersey (later Princeton University), no one had any real interest in reviving the Games.
However, to quote Coubertin again, “at the end of the Congress a unanimous vote was cast in favor of the revival mainly to please me.”
At first it was agreed that the Games would be held in Paris in 1900. However, six years seemed like a long time to wait, and it was decided (how and by whom is not known) to change the venue to Athens and the date to April. 1896.
A great indifference, if not opposition, had to be overcome, including the refusal of the Greek prime minister to organize the Games. But when a new prime minister took office, Coubertin and Vikélas were able to carry out their point, and the King of Greece inaugurated the Games in the first week of April 1896, on Greece’s Independence Day (which was the 25th of March according to the Julian Calendar then in use in Greece).
