Yes the word Olympics comes from the Greek as a reference to Mt. Olympus, where the Ancient games were held in honor of the Greek Gods.. I have to make a correction here. The word Olympics comes from the greek word Olympia, the place in Peloponnese, where the Ancient games were held in honor of the gods. Mt Olympus is the place where the greek gods where living, their residence in other words.
They were held outside of them and in front of them on fields where the events took place.
The Winter Olympics did not take place in 1953. They took place in 1952 in Oslo, Norway.
