QUIZ!!!
Where was the first "modern day" olympics?

Fun Facts
The first modern day Olympics was in Greece.
The Olympics were canceled in 1916, 1940 and 1944 due to WW I and II.
Up until 1994 the Olympics were both summer and winter in the same year, then wait 4 years, then again.
For the 2014 Sochi, Russia Olympics, the opening ceremony went like this: Song/dance, Big expanding olympic rings, the country's national anthem, and lots of other songs and dances that are related to that country in some way. Then the torch is lit. This year, famous, amazing athletes from past olympics passed the torch off from one to another.
