Summer time was the time of the year that the ancient Greek Olympics took place in.
The original Olympic games were competitions held between athletes from the city-states of ancient Greece. The first competition was held in Olympia, Greece in 776 BC. The Olympic Games get their name from Mt. Olympus (which is quite far from the plains of Olympia). Mt. Olympus was the home of the ancient Greek gods, in whose honor the games were performed every four years.

The Olympic games were believe to have been held to honor the Greek gods, one in particular named Zeus. The Olympic games began about 3,000 years ago and the first record game was in 776 BC. The games were held every 4 years in Olympia, Greece.
The first Olympic Games were held supposedly in 776 B.C. Greek males came from all over the Greek speaking world in honor of Zeus. The women could not be speculators, however they would have their own Olympic games held someplace else; in honor of the Goddess Hera. The very first event was a footrace. Later they added: the broad jump, the discus throw, boxing, and wrestling. The winners then received wreaths of olive leaves and held parades in their honor. In some states they even excused outstanding athletes from paying taxes.

Yes the word Olympics comes from the Greek as a reference to Mt. Olympus, where the Ancient games were held in honor of the Greek Gods.. I have to make a correction here. The word Olympics comes from the greek word Olympia, the place in Peloponnese, where the Ancient games were held in honor of the gods. Mt Olympus is the place where the greek gods where living, their residence in other words.
