Best Answer

The modern Olympic Games were started in 1894 when Pierre Fredi, Baron de Coubertin wanted to have an international understanding through sporting competition. I think the olympic games are cool to watch.

I am a differrent person then the ones who mad and edited it. The Olympics are dangerous, someone died in training. And training is usually so much work. What's wrong with just watching sports?

Also the olympic games was made up to train the army for war.
