The Olymics


The Olympics is a competition that is made up of multiple games of different sports. The Olympics has a rich history and is widely celebrated throughout the world. The Olympics is based on a form of Greek games many years ago. The Olympics has many different traditions to do with the history of the starting games in Greece.

  • The torch: In the Olympics at the very beginning of each opening ceremony they light a torch to represent the coming of the games. I believe that the torch represents the Greek god history as it is said that in Olympus there is a hearth that can control the gods power

  • The Rings: The Olympic flag is represented by 5 rings attached together to symbolize the coming together of the 5 continents in their love of sport.
