Moving on through the years

The Olympics have changed a lot since 1896: the stadiums, the technology, and even the opening and closing ceremonies were improved during the years.

In the most recent Olympic Games an unusual thing began. Every time a British athlete won gold a post box in their home town would be painted a shiny golden colour!!!

Getting ready for Brazil

The World Cup is well underway and Brazil is worried. Not by the possibility that the unfinished stadiums might collapse, or that protesters might storm them or train drivers might refuse to take fans to them. No -- it’s the performance of the national soccer team that has the country on edge. With a win and a tie so far, the performance of the team has been way below what Brazilians expect. What no one is even remotely concerned about now is a far bigger crisis looming in Brazil’s future: In just over two-years’ time, Brazil will host the world’s other great sporting festival, the Olympic Games. The country is not even remotely ready.

The 2016 Medals


Rory Mcilroy has announced that he will be playing golf for Ireland rather than Great Britain in the 2016 Olympics.


I know this might look a bit random but it's a special request from Mr G.

Archery is the skill of shooting arrows with the use of a bow. In the olden days, archery was used for hunting and combat, while in modern times, its main use is for a competitive sport. A person who takes part in archery is known as an "archer" or a "bowman", and one who is fond of or an expert at archery can be referred to as a toxophilite. (an unbelievable archer).
