The origin of the Olympics.
The modern Olympic Games date back only a little more than a century, while its earliest recorded ancient counterpart was held almost 3,000 years ago in 776 B.C., and took place every four years for more than a millennium. It is indeed a dream come true for many to be able to visit to the actual stadium where those old games were held and where the Olympic flame is lit to proclaim the opening of the modern athletic competitions.
