History of the Summer Olympics

Baron Pierre de Coubertin was a French sporting and social figure, initiator and organizer of the modern Olympic Games. He thought a great deal about holding international competitions in order to popularize sport. He also noticed the public interest in the ancient Olympic Games. So he developed a project to revive the Olympic Games and gave his presentation at the University of Paris in 1892.

On 23 June 1894, at a congress held at the Sorbonne, it was decided to revive the Olympic Games, as there were many sporting and international advantages.

The first Summer Olympic Games were held in Athens in 1896. This event was attended by 14 countries, which competed in 9 sports.
