The first Olympic games

The Olympics of 1896 in Athens in Greece had fourteen countries taking part, with most of the athletes in Greece. This first modern Olympics was the largest meeting of international competitors that had ever occurred. The next Olympics, held in Paris four years later, was the first to allow women competitors, this time the Olympics were part of a much bigger event and lasted several months.

  1. Hi Toby,
    I'm very glad that the Olympics now includes women athletes, and para-olympians also!
    Much more exciting to watch!
    Love Mum
