Each competitor will have a back story that many of us will never comprehend. Not just the sacrifices for 4 years (5 years this time around because of Covid), but the physical, mental, and emotional depths they must dive to secure their place in Tokyo. The added pressures of bubbles, isolation plus the absence of family and cheering fans must take some of the gloss away from the experience.
Just as the ancient Olympic Games were primarily a religious festival in honour of Zeus, the father of the Greek gods and goddesses held in Olympia, these games are a celebration and a festival which bring hope, create dreams, and inspire so many people across the globe.
The next two hundred years saw peaks and troughs in popularity but the core activities, athletics, throwing, jumping, wrestling, horse racing and of course eating and drinking remained. Gambling of many types and fortune telling appeared from time to time, and music was ever present.
The games still take place and the next one is scheduled for 3rd June 2022. https://www.olimpickgames.co.uk/
