The first Olympics games took place about 3000 years ago in Olympia Greece .The games were held to honour Zeus the king of the gods and they happened every 4 years. In the beginning the games were just short running races for Greek men to get fit for war . there was only one winner and the winner got a crown of olive leaves. Over time other events were added like horse racing and boxing. After 1000 years the Ancient Olympics were banned by the Christians .
