Home Olympics

Keep active at home by holding your very own Indoor Olympics using household objects, members of your family, and even your pet!

Inspired by the games of the Ancient Greeks, the modern Olympic Games were first held in Athens in 1896. Held every four years, the Olympics are celebrations of athleticism and sporting prowess on a global scale, with over 200 nations regularly competing for gold, silver, and bronze in dozens of different sports. The success of the Olympics (known as the Summer Games) lead to the creation of the Winter Olympics (focusing on snow-based events such as skiing and sledding), the Paralympic Games (for athletes with disabilities), and the Youth Olympic Games (for athletes 14 to 18 years old).
