First Olympics

2788 years ago took place the first official Olympics, in 776 BC. The sporting event lasted several centuries before it disappeared for several more centuries only to be resurrected in 1894. The XXX Olympiad will start this Friday July 27th in London, England.

It's quite amazing that a tradition that's nearly 3000 years old is still celebrated albeit in a much different fashion.
