From the very first Olympics,
which was held in Greece.
Man has tried with competition,
to bring about world peace.
There are many, many participants,
that compete in every sport.
The best each country has to offer,
coming from every port.
In 776 B.C., the first and only race,
was won by a cook name Coroebus.
Every four years ’til 393 A.D.,
the Olympics continued and grew thus.
For fifteen hundred and three years, competition ceased,
until April 6, 1896.
Renamed the games of the Olympiad,
for these nine days, it became the Olympic fix.
In 1932, the first Olympic Village,
became an Olympic fixture.
Many things began to change,
much being added to the mixture.
Competing for gold, silver or bronze,
the pressure is very intense.
It takes everything you have,
and even above more resilience.
The competition is very fierce,
and the winner will concur, no doubt.
But the modern version of it all,
is broadcast the world throughout.
These athletes work to the very edge,
of all that they can be.
To etch their name in worldly fame,
to be everlasting in history.
So join your favorites,
and root for your country.
It will be four more years,
of competition and sports unity.
