Ancient Olympics

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 .
 The ancient Olympics were always remember  For Hope and Peace .
