About the Games

The 1896 Summer Olympics, officially known as the Games of the I Olympiad, was held in Athens, Greece. It was the first international Olympic Games held in the Modern era; because Ancient Greece was the birthplace of the Olympic Games, Athens was considered to be an appropriate choice to stage the inaugural modern Games.
