Best Answer

The Olympics was created after it ended by a newspaper editor named Panagiotis Soutsos in a poem he wrote called "Dialogue of the Dead". In 1856, Evangelos Zappas wrote a letter to the King of Otto of Greece to re-establish the Olympics which lead to Zappas funding an Olympic game in 1859.
