Google Doodle celebrates 120 years after the revival of Ancient Olympic Games in Greece. Historic date: 6. April 1896.
The modern Olympic Games were inspired by the ancient Olympic Games, which were held in Olympia, Greece, from the 8th century BC to the 4th century AD.
Baron Pierre de Coubertin founded the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in 1894. The IOC is the governing body of the Olympic Movement, with the Olympic Charter defining its structure and authority.
Google marked the 120th anniversary of the first modern Olympic Games with its latest sporting doodle.
The doodle – four versions designed by Olivia Huynh, each featuring a different event from the Games – honors the 1896 Games of the I Olympiad in Athens, which involved nine sports in the Panathenaic Stadium.
Two-hundred-and-forty-one men, representing 14 countries, competed in a total of 43 events, in tennis, fencing, weightlifting, track and field, cycling, shooting, swimming, wrestling and gymnastics.
