The Olympic Games Free Bets
Olympic Games History
The Modern Day Olympics have been thrilling sports fans since 1896 when the International Olympic Committee staged the Games. Considering the history of the Olympic Games, it was fitting that those games took place in Athens, Greece where the event had been staged from the 8th century BC and the 4th century AD.
Since 1896 the Olympics have been held every four years apart from when the two World Wars made it impossible for them to be staged. As well as the Summer Olympics, there are also the Winter Olympics that were first held in 1924. Initially they were held in the winter before the summer Olympics were due to take place but are now held two years after the previous Summer Olympics with the next due to be held in 2021 in Beijing, China. Another recent addition is the Paralympics take place after the Winter and Summer Olympics in the same host country.
2020 Summer Olympic Games Delayed until 2021
The next Summer Olympic Games were due to be held in Tokyo, Japan from 24 July to August 9. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event has been postponed until 2021. It will hopefully be held between 23 July and 8 August. The decision to give the games to Tokyo was taken in 2013 and will be the first time the city has staged the Summer Olympics since 1964 and will be the fourth Olympic Games to be held in the country of Japan as they also held the Winter Olympics in 1972 and 1988.
2020 will see several new sports being introduced into the Summer Olympic Games. 3x3 Basketball, Freestyle BMX and Madison Cycling will be making their debuts and more mixed events will be held. There will also be Karate, Sport Climbing, Surfing, Skateboarding, Baseball and Softball. There was even a campaign to introduce Bingo as an Olympic sport but thankfully that hasn't been approved.
