As far as I know, the modern Olympics have never been abolished. There have been times when teams or countries boycotted, but the Olympics still continues on, year after year, as they have since 1896. But perhaps you are referring to ancient times: during the Roman Empire, Emperor Theodosius I (who was a Christian) decided the Olympics were too pagan, and he ordered them to be banned. That occurred in the year 393, and the ban lasted for more than 1500 years.
