The modern Olympics is the greatest sports gathering bar none.
In grandeur and prestige, the modern Olympics handily beats all other sporting events. Wimbledon, the Superbowl, the ICC Cricket World Cup, Champions League and every other sporting jamboree pales in comparison before the majestic splendor of the Olympic games. A legacy of the competition that started in the ancient Greek city of Olympia in 776 BC and continued for over a thousand years (until 394 AD), the modern Olympics, which commenced in 1896, is held every four years.
The Olympics are taking place in London with athletes from over 200 countries competing for medals, glory, wealth and, above all, the roaring applause of spectators in the stadium and millions more glued to TV screens worldwide.
This will be the 30th modern Olympics and the third time the city of London is hosting the prestigious sporting event. The London Olympics started on July 27, 2012 and will continue for 17 days, until August 12.
Ticket sales for the London Olympics have been slower than anticipated. Perhaps, this is due to the global recession and economic meltdown in parts of Europe, notably Spain and Greece.
