The Organising Committee for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver is known as VANOC and is hard at work preparing all aspects of the forthcoming games, including pulling out all stops to try and ensure that Canadian athletes are given the support they need to try and come top of the medals board.

- Canada 5 medals Albertville - France 7 medals Lillehammer - Norway 13 medals Nagano - Japan 15 medals Salt Lake City - USA 17 medals Turin - Italy ? The reason there were only 2 years between the Winter Olympics in Albertville and Lillehammer was that it was at this point that it was decided that, rather than hold the Summer and Winter Olympic Games in the same year, they would be held two years apart; each games still being held every four years.

Herodotus The Persian Wars , VIII, 26
describes athletic competitions in the Iliad as funeral games in honour of Patroklos and the contests held by the Phaeacians to entertain their guest, Odysseus , in the Odyssey . The motivation for competition initially could be for personal reasons only ( always to be the best and preeminent among all others as Peleus says to his son Achilles, Iliad ). I believe this to be the real reason of the success of the ancient Olympic Games. To win before a large crowd of people is more attractive and such occasions were various festivals in honour of the gods. The first known record of the Ancient Olympic Games traces back to 776 BC. After the end of the 4th BC century the games were less religious oriented with more professional athletes (participating in various games and collecting prizes like modern Tennis players). The Olympics were held every 4 years in July or August. The time between two Olympic Games was called an Olympiad. Only Greeks free citizens were initially allowed to participate (with some exceptions such as Nero).

The first Olympic Games took place in Greece thousands of years ago. The very first modern day Olympic Games also took place in Greece, in Athens in 1896 and they have been held every 4 years since then, the only interruption to the schedule being during World Wars I and II. Some of the world's top athletes compete against one another, hoping to be acclaimed as the best in the world by winning gold, silver or bronze medals. The first separate Winter Olympics took place in 1924 in Chamonix, France. Originally these winter games were held every four years in the same year as the summer games. However, the decision was taken to split the games and to hold them every alternate two years. The first of the winter games in this new schedule was in Lillehammer, Norway in 1994. ORGANISATION: IOC International Olympic Committee The official languages are English and French.

The Olympic Games
Photo courtesy and 1996 The Ancient Greek World The Olympic Games called the Panhellenic Games were first held in Olympia around 775 BC. No one knows why the games started. Here are a few myths explaining why the first games were held:
  • One legend says the games were started when Hercules brought a sacred olive tree to Olympia. Another myth says the games started when Pelops established a festival after defeating King Oenomaus in a chariot race. One myth says the games started when a cook named Koroibos, from the nearby city of Elis, won the stadion race, a 600 foot long race. Others say the Olympic Games were first held as part of a religious festival honoring Zeus.
The Olympic games were open to all city-states. Anyone who was a free man could participate. Men as far away as Spain and Turkey also came to the games. The games had few rules. Women were forbidden to attend the games. The games were held every four years at four different shrines:
  • Olympia - Zeus honored Nemean Gamea at Nemea (in southern Greece) - Zeus honored Isthmian Games at Isthmia in Corinth - Poseidon honored Pythian Games at Delphi - Apollo honored
The city-states would stop fighting each other to go to the games. The Olympic games lasted for one week. The first day of the event ceremonies and sacrifices took place. On the closing day a victory banquet for the winning athletes and a procession was held.
