Ancient Olympics

The Olympics began over 2 and a half thousand years ago in Ancient Greece. The Greek states who were at war stopped. This event was in a place call Olympia. They were held every four years in honour of Zeus lord of all the Gods. Eventually the Ancient Olympics were banned by the Christians who didn't like the games. But the Olympics were always remembered for peace.
