Held every 4 years, this year in Rio De Janerio, 167 countries compete in many various sports & it's a Thrill to watch! It lasts a lil over 2 weeks. My favorite sport is gymnastics. Originated from sports events in Olympia, Greece very many centuries ago!
I can't wait til The Olympics start! I'll be glued to the TV & get to see excellent athletes from so many different countries! I love the opening & closing ceremonies too & the lighting of the Olympic Torch, the parade of flags from all the different countries. The Winter Olympics occur every 4 years staggered by a 2~year time frame from the Summer Olympics.

Get the mug
Get a The Olympics mug for your papa Vivek.
The only time that anybody will watch luge, curling, table tennis, ski jumping, or people swimming laps. Happens every other year, switching from winter to summer Olympics each time, often times being really awkward for the leaders of the countries who hate each other.
Right when I get really interested in seeing who wins in figure skating in the Olympics, they switch to curling.

The Olympics is that special time that ping pong becomes known as Table Tennis for a few weeks.
