Olympic Games

The Olympic Games are a worldwide sports event. In the early 20th century, they vied with the World's Fair for splendor and grandeur, which was known as the Festival War.

The Olympic Games were founded in 1904 by what would become the Moscow Pact, and, later, the League of Nations. In 1942, the Winter Olympic Games were started. They alternate every four years, as do the summer games, so there is an Olympic games every two years.
