Why would war stop when the ancient olympic games were being held?

In Ancient Greece, warfare generally ceased during the times in which the Olympic games were held (and during similar athletic contests elsewhere in Greece) due to their religious significance. Formal athletic contests like the Olympics were, for ancient Greeks, divine gifts of some kind. The gods were thought to enjoy the games; the games were considered to be an offering to the gods. Thus, to engage in warfare during these times would be to commit an offense against the gods -- and to run the risk of divine punishment as a result.

Where is the Olympic flame kept during the Olympics?

The Olympic flame is a practice continued from the ancient Olympic Games. In Olympia (Greece), a flame was ignited by the sun and then kept burning until the closing of the Olympic Games. The flame first appeared in the modern Olympics at the 1928 Olympic Games in Amsterdam. The flame itself represents a number of things, including purity and the endeavor for perfection. In 1936, the chairman of the organizing committee for the 1936 Olympic Games, Carl Diem, suggested what is now the modern Olympic Torch relay. The Olympic flame is lit at the ancient site of Olympia by women wearing ancient-style robes and using a curved mirror and the sun. The Olympic Torch is then passed from runner to runner from the ancient site of Olympia to the Olympic stadium in the hosting city. The flame is then kept alight until the Games have concluded. The Olympic Torch relay represents a continuation from the ancient Olympic Games to the modern Olympics.
