The Olympics include lots of games and sports such as swimming, tennis, cycling and running. People come from all over the world to really see the Olympics. Or some people just watch them on the television.
How The Olympics started The myth goes to say that It was said that Heracles had a piano teacher who he didn’t like because he told him that he was bad at the piano. So Heracles killed his teacher and most of the children that upset the gods and made them angry. Heracles decided to do competitions witch he called the Olympic games, but to do this he had to muck out the stables.

But there was a big gap between the last of the Ancient Greek games and the first of the Modern Olympic games.
