The Olympic Games
The Olympic Games were first held at Olympia Greece as long as 776 B.C. They were held once every four years. The custom (传统) lasted for more than 1,000 years but died out under the ruler of Rome and stopped with the decline (衰弱) of ancient Greek civilization (古希腊文明).
Then in 1896 the games were held again. In that year, a Frenchman, Baron de Cowbertin, decided to try to start the game again. He wished to renew (恢复) those thoughts of excellence (美德) of body, mind and spirits shown in the ancient Greek Olympics. He did it, and the modern Olympics have grown with more and more nations and athletes taken part in. Because of the world wars they were not held in 1916 or in 1940 or in 1944. They had been regularly (有规律的) held since then.
