There was no Olympics in 2011. The Summer Olympics are held every four years and the Winter Olympics are held every four years. However, there is an Olympics held every other year because the Summer Olympics and the Winter Olympics are held two years apart in alternating even-numbered years.

However, there was a Special Olympics held in 2011. The 2011 Special Olympics World Summer Games was held in Athens, Greece from June 25 to July 4, 2011.

Where were the 1894 Olympic games held?

Evangelos Zappas, a wealthy Greek philanthropist, sponsored the first modern revival of the Olympic Games.The first modern international Olympic Games was held in an Athens city square in 1859. Zappas paid for the refurbishment of the ancient Panathenian Stadium. This first modern international Olympic Games to be hosted in a stadium was hosted there in 1870, followed by a second 1875. The same stadium was refurbished a second time and used for the Athens 1896 Games. The revival of the Olympic Games, sponsored by Zappas was a dedicated Olympic Games composed of athletes from two countries: Greece and the Ottoman Empire.

Do Olympic games bring peace?

The 1956 Olympic Games was held in Melbourne Australia during the height of the Cold War. Throughout the world, there was much global tension and political unrest because of the Suez Crisis, the invasion of Hungary by Russia, tension between East and West Germany and between main-land China and Taiwan. A decade earlier, World War Two shook the foundation of human civilization. It should have served a lesson for future generations that aggression and violence was not the way to win world peace.The first boycott of an Olympic Games was at the 1956 Melbourne Games. A number of countries pulled out of the Games as a protest because of the Suez Crisis and Russia invading Hungary. Athletes were being segregated in the Olympic Village and also fighting broke out between Russian and Hungarian players during a water polo match. It was the fighting which prompted the boy to write his letter in an attempt to save the Games and to get all the athletes together.Foreign governments had high-jacked the Games and the athletes were a pawn in their game. The Olympic Movement was being torn apart. The IOC and the Organizing Committee had given up all hope of saving the Games from ending in failure.Watching all of this was a schoolboy from Swinburne Junior Technical School who was training to be an apprentice carpenter. He was very concerned at what was happening and he came up with an 'idea' of holding a peace march during the Closing Ceremony. He wrote an anonymous letter to the chairman of the Organizing Committee Wilfrid Kent Hughes setting out his 'idea'. The boy included a drawing to help explain his idea. (Later he was asked why he wanted to remain anonymous, he replied "In case people thought it was a silly idea.")In his letter he wrote, "And there shall be only One Nation. War, politics and nationality will be all forgotten, what more could anybody want if the whole world became One Nation."The president of the IOC Avery Brundage agreed to the boy's request and changed the rules of the Games. For the first time in Olympic history, athletes were allowed to march in the Closing Ceremony. It was also the first International Peace March to be held in the history of Mankind. Prior to those Games, athletes had never before marched in an Olympic Closing Ceremony since the Games began in 776 B.C..Since 1956, athletes have continued to march in the Closing Ceremony as one nation as a show of global unity. They will continue to do so on the final day of the London Olympic Games 2012.


Why was the distance 42 km?

Aahhhh.... my imperialist mind converts this to 26 miles or thereabouts ! Marathon ! Nope, its got nothing to do with the run from the battle to Athens by Euripides or Socrates or whoever it was. When the Olympic games came to London the distance was measured from Windsor Castle to White City and that was how far they ran & that was the distance run in the Marathon ever since !


What was the symbol for Olympics 1896?

I am not sure there was any, the official emblem of the Olympic Games (five rings representing five continents in a white background) was introduced at the beginning of the 20 century).
