TheOlympicGamesinAncientTimes Photo The Olympics is, without exception, the most prestigious sporting event in the world and has been since 800 years before Jesus Christ was born; but it hasn't always been the popular sporting event we know and love now - in fact at one point it was stopped altogether. How much do you know about its origins in Ancient Greece? The questions tend to be a bit long, but hope you enjoy it anyway.

Info from a lifetime of interest in historical documentaries and publications, and a selection of websites such as wikipedia.
