The Ancient Olympic Games were organised in Ancient Olympia Greece and, therefore, named after their location. It is not quite clear when they began, however, there are records dating 776 BC. They took place every four years for more than a millennium. This four-year cycle was referred to as “Olympiad”, and was used as a date system. Time was not counted in years but in Olympiads.

This article, mentions that Greece is where Olympic Games were orginated from. These games were created to worship tne Gods and to represent their strengths. These games were first made for a peace treaty but then became a culture event for all greeks to do.
