Early years[ edit ] The opening ceremony of the first modern Olympic Games in the Panathenaic Stadium The modern Olympic Games were founded in when Pierre de Coubertin sought to promote international understanding through sporting competition.
Nevertheless, no international events of this magnitude had been organized before. It was the first Olympic Games held in the Modern era. About , people attended for the opening of the games. The athletes came from 14 different nations, with most coming from Greece.
Although Greece had the most athletes, the U. It was unanimously chosen as the host city during a congress organized by Pierre de Coubertin , a French pedagogue and historian, in Paris, on 23 June Despite many obstacles and setbacks, the Olympics were regarded as a great success.
The Games had the largest international participation of any sporting event to that date. Panathinaiko Stadium , the first big stadium in the modern world, overflowed with the largest crowd ever to watch a sporting event. He won in 2 hours 58 minutes and 50 seconds, setting off wild celebrations at the stadium. The most successful competitor was German wrestler and gymnast Carl Schuhmann , who won four gold medals. However, the Summer Olympics were already planned for Paris and, except for the Intercalated Games , the Olympics did not return to Greece until the Summer Olympics.
Four years later the Summer Olympics in Paris attracted more than four times as many athletes, including 20 women, who were allowed to officially compete for the first time, in croquet , golf , sailing , and tennis.
It is still disputed which events exactly were Olympic, since few or maybe even none of the events were advertised as such at the time. Dorando Pietri finishes the modern marathon at the current distance Numbers declined for the Games in St. In contrast with Paris , the word Olympic was used for practically every contest, including those exclusively for school boys or for Irish-Americans. A series of smaller games were held in Athens in The IOC does not currently recognize these games as being official Olympic Games, although many historians do.
The Athens games were the first of an alternating series of games to be held in Athens, but the series failed to materialize. The games were more successful than the and games, with over athletes competing, and contributed positively to the success of future games.
The London Games saw numbers rise again, as well as the first running of the marathon over its now-standard distance of The new marathon distance was chosen to ensure that the race finished in front of the box occupied by the British royal family. At the six Olympic games between and , the marathon was raced over six different distances. At the end of the marathon the Italian runner Dorando Pietri was first to enter the stadium, but he was clearly in distress, and collapsed of exhaustion before he could complete the event.
He was helped over the finish line by concerned race officials, but later he was disqualified and the gold medal was awarded to John Hayes , who had trailed him by around 30 seconds. The Games continued to grow, attracting 2, competitors, to Stockholm in , including the great all-rounder Jim Thorpe , who won both the decathlon and pentathlon.
Thorpe had previously played a few games of baseball for a fee, and saw his medals stripped for this breach of amateurism after complaints from Avery Brundage. They were reinstated in , 30 years after his death.
For the first time since the Games started in were all five inhabited continents represented with athletes competing in the same stadium. Interwar era[ edit ] The Antwerp games in war-ravaged Belgium were a subdued affair, but again drew a record number of competitors.
This record only stood until , when the Paris Games involved 3, competitors, the greatest of whom was Finnish runner Paavo Nurmi. The " Flying Finn " won three team gold medals and the individual 1, and 5, meter runs, the latter two on the same day.
This design was used up until The Los Angeles games were affected by the Great Depression , which contributed to the low number of competitors the fewest since the St. The Berlin Games were seen by the German government as a golden opportunity to promote their ideology. The ruling Nazi Party commissioned film-maker Leni Riefenstahl to film the games. In particular, African-American sprinter and long jumper Jesse Owens won four gold medals.
The Berlin Games also saw the reintroduction of the Torch Relay. The Games of were due to be held in London but were also cancelled; instead, London hosted the first games after the end of the war, in At the Games in Helsinki the USSR team competed for the first time and immediately became one of the dominant teams finishing second in the number gold medals won. Soviet immediate success might be explained by the advent of the state-sponsored "full-time amateur athlete". The USSR entered teams of athletes who were all nominally students, soldiers, or working in a profession, but many of whom were in reality paid by the state to train on a full-time basis, hence violationg amateur rules.
Having first won both the 10, and 5, meter races, he also entered the marathon, despite having never previously raced at that distance.
The Melbourne Games were largely successful, barring a water polo match between Hungary and the Soviet Union, which the Soviet invasion of Hungary caused to end as a pitched battle between the teams.
Due to a foot-and-mouth disease outbreak in Britain at the time and the strict quarantine laws of Australia, the equestrian events were held in Stockholm. At the Rome Games a young light-heavyweight boxer named Cassius Clay, later known as Muhammad Ali , arrived on the scene. Ali would later throw his gold medal away in disgust after being refused service in a whites-only restaurant in his home town of Louisville, Kentucky. The Games held in Tokyo are notable for heralding the modern age of telecommunications.
These games were the first to be broadcast worldwide on television, enabled by the recent advent of communication satellites. The Games were thus a turning point in the global visibility and popularity of the Olympics. Judo debuted as an official sport, and Dutch judoka Anton Geesink created quite a stir when he won the final of the open weight division, defeating Akio Kaminaga in front of his home crowd. Performances at the Mexico City games were affected by the altitude of the host city,  specifically the long jump, in which American athlete Bob Beamon jumped 8.
The Games also introduced the now-universal Fosbury flop , a technique which won American high jumper Dick Fosbury the gold medal. She returned home as a heroine of the Czechoslovak people, but was made an outcast by the Soviet dominated government. Politics again intervened at Munich in , with lethal consequences. A Palestinian terrorist group named Black September invaded the Olympic village and broke into the apartment of the Israeli delegation.
They killed two Israelis and held 9 others as hostages. The terrorists demanded that Israel release numerous prisoners. When the Israeli government refused their demand, a tense stand-off ensued while negotiations continued.
Eventually the captors, still holding their hostages, were offered safe passage and taken to an airport, where they were ambushed by German security forces. In the firefight that followed, 15 people, including the nine Israeli athletes and five of the terrorists, were killed. After much debate, it was decided that the Games would continue, but proceedings were obviously dominated by these events. Korbut, however, failed to win the all-around, losing to her teammate Ludmilla Tourischeva.
For a time, it seemed that the Olympics might no longer be a viable financial proposition. In retrospect, the belief that contractors suspected of being members of the Montreal Mafia skimmed large sums of money from all levels of contracts while also profiting from the substitution of cheaper building materials of lesser quality, may have contributed to the delays, poor construction and excessive costs. In , one such contractor, Giuseppe Zappia "was cleared of fraud charges that resulted from his work on Olympic facilities after two key witnesses died before testifying at his trial.
She also won two other individual events, with two perfect scores in the balance beam and all perfect scores in the uneven bars. Eighty nations were represented at the Moscow Games — the smallest number since The boycott contributed to the Games being a less publicised and less competitive affair, which was dominated by the host country.
Romania , notably, was one of the nations in the Eastern Bloc that did attend the Olympics. These games were perhaps the first games of a new era to make a profit. Although a boycott led by the Soviet Union depleted the field in certain sports, National Olympic Committees took part, which was a record at the time. Sergei Portugalov of the Institute for Physical Culture. Portugalov was also one of the main figures involved in the implementation of the Russian doping program prior to the Summer Olympics.
Despite splendid drug-free performances by many individuals, the number of people who failed screenings for performance-enhancing chemicals overshadowed the games.
The games also saw the reintroduction to the Games of several smaller European states which had been incorporated into the Soviet Union since World War II.

These games also saw gymnast Vitaly Scherbo equal the record for most individual gold medals at a single Games set by Eric Heiden in the Winter Games , with five. By then the process of choosing a location for the Games had itself become a commercial concern; allegations of corruption rocked the International Olympic Committee.
In the Atlanta games in , the highlight was meters runner Michael Johnson annihilating the world record in front of a home crowd. This was popularly felt to be an appropriate recompense for the previous national disgrace involving Ben Johnson.
The latter event took place not at the boxing ring but in the basketball arena, at the demand of US television.
The atmosphere at the Games was marred, however, when a bomb exploded during the celebration in Centennial Olympic Park. In June , the principal suspect in this bombing, Eric Robert Rudolph , was arrested. New millennium[ edit ] The Summer Olympics were held in Sydney, Australia, and showcased individual performances by local favorite Ian Thorpe in the pool, Briton Steve Redgrave who won a rowing gold medal in an unprecedented fifth consecutive Olympics, and Cathy Freeman , an Indigenous Australian whose triumph in the meters united a packed stadium.
Eric "the Eel" Moussambani , a swimmer from Equatorial Guinea, received wide media coverage when he completed the meter freestyle swim in by far the slowest time in Olympic history. He nevertheless won the heat as both his opponents had been disqualified for false starts. His female compatriot Paula Barila Bolopa also received media attention for her record-slow and struggling but courageous performance.
The Sydney Games also saw the first appearance of a joint North and South Korean contingent at the opening ceremonies, though they competed as different countries.
