The Summer Olympic Games or the Games of the Olympiad are organized by the International Olympic Committee and held every four years, allowing world class athletes to compete in major individual and team sporting events. The first modern Olympics were held in 1896 -- the brainchild of French educator Baron Pierre de Coubertin, who spoke at the Sorbonne in favor of reviving the ancient Greek games.
This year's games (30th Summer Olympic Games, July 27-August 12) are being hosted by the City of London which won the bid against Paris in the final round of elections.
