The first Olympics in ancient times were held in Olympia, Greece, in 776 BC and from then on the games were usually held every four years until AD 393. The revival of the sporting event, which only occurred at the end of the 19th century, is associated with the name of Pierre de Coubertin. The first Olympic Games of the modern era embracing many disciplines were held in Athens, Greece, in 1896. The international event has enjoyed constant success ever since.
