Friday Fun Facts - Olympic Special

This week in keeping with what all the world will be watching and talking about in the next 2 weeks we are dedicating this Friday’s Fun Facts to the ‘Olympics’

- The early Olympics ran from 776BC to 393AD
- They were then returned in 1896  by French educator 
- Good Old Fashioned “Tug of War” was once an Olympic sport
- The US have won the most medals overall in the modern Olympics BUT in the first Olympics Greece
- The continents of South America, Africa and Antartica have never played host to an Olympics
- A gold medal is not solid gold, the last of the solid gold medals were at the 1912 games

Happy Play Times :-)
