The Olympic Games have a very long history. They began in 777 BC in Greece and took place every four years for nearly twelve centuries at Olimpia. They included many different kinds of sports: running, boxing, wrestling, etc. All the cities in Greece sent their best athletes to Olimpia to compete in the Games. For the period of the Games all the wars stopped. So the Olympic Games became the symbol of peace and friendship.
In 1894, a Frenchman, Baron Pierre de Coubertin, addressed all the sports governing bodies and pointed out the importance of sports and its educational value. Two years later the first modern Olympic Games took place. Of course, the competitions were held in Greece. They symbolized the continuation of old tradition.
Sochi was selected as the host city in July 2007, during the 119th IOC Session held in Guatemala City. It was the greatest event for all people of our country.
People all over the world were looking forward to this unforgettable sport event.
More than 3,000 people from artistic groups participated in dance, ballet, acrobatic and circus performances during the opening ceremony .
