The first modern Olympics were held in Athens, Greece, because Greece 'invented' the Olympics in ancient times. The date was 1896. During WW2 they were suspended of course. They were scheduled for 1940 as they were in Berlin in 1936. Hitler got into the way for the never held 1940 Olympics. I have a comment on the modern day Olympics. In ancient Greece the idea was to credit the individual winners .. they were never intended to be a contest as to how many medals a country won. In ancient Greece the city states entered athletes but as example Sparta did not gather medals...
