The contemporary Olympic Games, often known as the Olympics, are major international athletic events that feature summer and winter sports competitions that attract thousands of participants worldwide. With over 200 countries competing, the Olympic Games are regarded as the world’s most important sporting event. The Olympic Games are held every four years, with the Summer and Winter Olympics alternated every two years within that time.

The ancient Olympic Games (Ancient Greek: v), held in Olympia, Greece, from the 8th century BC to the 4th century AD, inspired their development. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) was formed in 1894 by Baron Pierre de Coubertin, and the first modern Games were held in Athens in 1896. The Olympic Charter defines the organization and power of the IOC, which is the governing body of the Olympic Movement.

Several modifications to the Olympic Games have come from the evolution of the Olympic Movement in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. The Winter Olympic Games for snow and ice sports, the Paralympic Games for athletes with disabilities, the Youth Olympic Games for athletes aged 14 to 18, the five Continental Games (Pan American, African, Asian, European, and Pacific), and the World Games for sports not contested in the Olympic Games are just a few of the changes that have been made. The IOC also supports the Deaflympics and Special Olympics. The International Olympic Committee has had to adjust to a range of economic, political, and technical changes.

The IOC shifted away from true amateurism, as envisioned by Coubertin, to the admission of professional athletes competing in the Games due to the Eastern Bloc nations’ misuse of amateur standards. Because of the increasing prominence of the media, the problem of corporate sponsorship and overall commercialization of the Games has arisen.

1916, 1940, and 1944 Olympics were canceled due to World Wars I and II; large-scale boycotts during the Cold War hampered participation in the 1980 and 1984 Olympics, and the 2020 Olympics were postponed until 2021 because of the COVID-19 epidemic.

International sports federations (IFs), National Olympic Bodies (NOCs), and organizing committees make up the Olympic Movement. As the decision-making body, the IOC is in charge of selecting the host city for each game and organizing and funding them in accordance with the Olympic Charter. The IOC also decides on the Olympic program, which includes the sports completed during the Games.

The Olympic flag and torch and the opening and closing ceremonies are all part of the Olympic tradition. Over 14,000 competitors competed in 35 different sports and over 400 events at the 2016 Summer and 2018 Winter Olympics. Olympic medals are awarded to the first, second, and third-place finishers in each event: goldsilver, and bronze, respectively.

The Games have risen in popularity to the point that virtually every country is now represented. Several problems and issues have arisen due to this expansion, including boycotts, doping, bribery, and a terrorist assault in 1972. Athletes have the opportunity to achieve national and occasionally international renown every two years, thanks to the Olympics and its media coverage. The Games also provide a platform for the host city and country to promote themselves to the rest of the globe.
