THE OLYMPIC GAMES

The first record of the games dates from 776 BC in Greece. The important sports in the original Olympic Games were running, jumping, wrestling, throwing the discus and throwing the javelin. Only men competed, and they wore no clothes in order to have greater freedom of movement.

The first modern Olympiad took place in Athens in 1896. Since then the Olympic Games have been held every four years with only two exceptions because of the two world wars. There may be Summer and Winter Games.

In modern times the Olympic movement has become an enormous and expensive organization. The Winter Olympic Games are a multi-sport event held every four years.

The Winter Olympics have been hosted on three continents, but never in a country in the southern hemisphere. The United States has hosted the Games four times. France has been the host three times. Austria, Canada, Italy, Japan, Norway and Switzerland have hosted the Games twice.

In 2014 Sochi was the first Russian city to host the Winter Olympics. Our Government, Olympic Sports Committee and sportsmen were preparing for this event with great enthusiasm. Our sportsmen won the greatest number of golden medals. We all supported our sportsmen. Our country is very proud of them.
