The ancient Olympics were held every 4-5 years for over 4,000 years, (well actually farther back than this), in Olympia, with one sport in the beginning but eventually more were added over time. The first (known) 13 Games, the competition consisted of a single foot race. Then, in 393 A.D., a Christian emperor abolished the Games throughout the Roman Empire due to their pagan nature. It wasn’t until 1896, that a French aristocrat revived them, which is why they’re often called the modern Games today.
