Come join us as we sketch the summer Olympics
The time has come for Athletes to gather together in Tokyo, Japan for the summer Olympics. Every four years, athletes from around the world gather to compete in the Ancient Greek games called the Olympics. In fact, the Olympics were first held in the summer of 776 B.C. in Olympia, Greece. A site in southern Greece where people worshiped their gods. In fact, the Olympics were created in honor of ancient Greece’s most famous god: Zeus, king of the gods. Competitors then fought until one gave up or died. Today competitors compete for the honor of being the best in the world receiving gold, silver and bronze medals in events such as basketball, cycling, tennis, volleyball, archery, rowing, shooting, weightlifting, fencing, judo and triathlons just to name a few.
Winners didn’t always get a medal, though. Victors in the earliest Olympics won a crown of olive leaves.
