What are the Summer Olympics and how did it begin? The Summer Olympics began in Ancient Greece approximately 3,000 years ago beginning in the 8th Century B.C. until the 4th Century A.D. and was held in Olympia, Greece as a way to honor the God Zeus according to History.com article "The Olympics Games."
It was named after the town Olympia where the games began, and it was considered a holy site. According to this article about the ancient Olympics it stated, "
Tokyo's Olympic Stadium.
The 2020 Summer Olympic Oath was revised. Here is the new wording for this year’s Summer Games all of the Olympic Athletes will take during Opening Ceremonies and pledge to abide to during the Summer Olympics.

Together we stand in solidarity and commit ourselves to sport without doping, without cheating, without any form of discrimination. We do this for the honour of our teams, in respect for the Fundamental Principles of Olympism, and to make the world a better place through sport.”
