The 2008 Olympics in Beijing will be called the 29th Olympiad. They are actually numbered as if they were held every four years. For example, the cancelled 1916 Olympics would have been the 6th, but the 1920 Olympics were called the 7th. The Olympics were skipped in 1916, 1940 and 1944 due to the wars. So the 29th Olympiad will really be the 26th modern Olympics.
The ancient Olympics were held in honor of the Greek god Zeus, primarily.
