We have seen plenty about our luxury villas in Sarjapur which are located in one of a kind sports city. Our villas in Sarjapur Road, Bangalore, have Olympic quality sports facilities as we have previously explained in our blogs. Now, let us take a look at Olympics and its History.
Greece is one of the most ancient civilisations in the world and they have aptly incorporated and encouraged the growth and importance of sports in one’s life through the inception of Olympics.
The Olympic Games are the world's biggest sporting spectacle. They are divided into summer and winter Games, held every four years by a single city. Athletes with disabilities compete at the Paralympics. More than 10,000 athletes take part in the summer events alone. The Olympic Games originated long ago in ancient Greece. Exactly when the Games were first held and what circumstances led to their creation is uncertain. We do know, however, that the Games were a direct outgrowth of the values and beliefs of Greek society.
The Ancient Olympic Games were religious and athletic festivals were held every four years at the sanctuary of Zeus in Olympia, Greece. Competition was among representatives of several city-states and kingdoms of Ancient Greece.
People have known the importance of sports and physical activities right from the ancient times. We should also understand the same and encourage our next generation to stay healthy.
