Zusammenfassung

The Olympic Games have become one of the world’s largest and most popular sporting events with over 203 countries participating in the games held every two years. The Olympic Games have a profound and rich history. The ancient Olympic Games trace their beginning back to the mythic date 776 BC as a Greek religious festival held every four years in honor of their supreme god, Zeus. Restricted to men, the ancient Olympics were held for nearly 1200 years until their demise in late antiquity about 400 AD (Howell & Howell, 1988).
