Tonight is the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games! Millions of people around the world will tune in to watch the festivities and celebrate the beginning of “the world’s greatest sporting event.”
The first Olympic Games took place in Ancient Greece in 776 BC. Historians believe there was just one event—a short sprint called the “stadion.” The modern-day Olympic Games began in 1896. Today, over 10,000 athletes from over 200 countries compete for a coveted gold medal.
