The First Olympics
The Olympics in 1896 in Athens in Greece had fourteen countries taking part with most athletes from Greece. This first modern Olympics was the largest meeting of international competitors, that had ever occurred. The next Olympics, was held in Paris and was the first to allow women competitors. This time, the Olympics were part of a much bigger event and lasted several months.
