The games are named for Olympia, Greece, where the first such event is believed to have been held. The Olympics were an event of such magnitude that even warring nations would offer safe passage to athletes traveling to and from the games.
In the year 67 A.D., it was shown that having local officials be the final arbiter of the games was a concept vulnerable to corruption. Then Roman Nero (whose full name was Nero Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus) was convinced that he should enter the Olympics to demonstrate Roman superiority to the surrounding nations.

The first Summer Olympics tickets for sale appeared in 1896 for the premier event under the IOC. These inaugural games were held in Athens, Greece as a tribute to the original Olympic games. Winter Olympics tickets for sale appeared on the scene in 1908. The purpose of the Winter Games was to showcase sports such as figure skating and hockey which could only be done in cold weather. In today's world, most Winter Games events could be held year round at indoor arenas, but the games remain separate as independent but related events. Queenbeetickets.com allows fans a chance to see the best athletes in the world by offering them discount Olympics tickets.
The Olympics have become such a major event that they are often used as an opportunity for political grandstanding by various countries. In the 1956 Olympics, the Netherlands, Spain, and Switzerland refused to participate in the games as a protest against the manner in which the Soviet Union was handling an uprising in Hungary. In a departure from the ancient version of the games that saw nations at odds set aside their differences to support the games, modern countries commonly use the games as a platform to express their disapproval of the host nation or other nations participating in the games.
