The original Olympics began in 776 BC at Olympia in Greece, where various city-states competed among each other to honour Zeus, the King of the Gods. The Modern Olympics began in Athens in 1896. Only fourteen nations competed in the 1896 Olympics, including Greece, the United States, Australia, France, Germany, Great Britain and Switzerland.
