  1. The Olympics By Peter Clarke

  2. The First Olympics • In Ancient Greece in 776 BC, the first Olympics took place. This included wrestling, running and discus throwing. • Once it had kicked off, it was a really famous game, taking place every year for the next 120 years.

  3. The Modern Olympics • In the 1870s research began into games in Ancient Greece and they found out about the Olympic games in Olympia. • Soon the scientists wanted to recreate the games so in 1896 in Greece, the first modern Olympics was held. • After that, it took place every leap year from then on.

  4. Beijing 2008 • This year the Olympics was held in Beijing, China. one of Britain’s best successes was taekwondo with Aaron Cook being a great player in it. Sadly, he never made it to the finals and so did not have the chance of getting a medal at all. This disappointed us Brits and we did not like it one little bit. • However, Britain had a great success at other sports including swimming, track running and other stuff (I know STUFF isn’t a technical term, but it is the best word I can use to describe things (Ok, I don’t know any other events Britain was good in (I am such a durbrain!!!))) Oh, Britain came 3rd in the medal table, which is the best we’ve ever done so we have very puny little weaklings in our country!!!
