The Rest Is History

80. Modern Olympics - Part 1

The Rest Is History

In 1896 the Olympic Games were reborn in Athens. Here we look at the forgotten tales and little known facts from the start of the modern Olympics through to the outbreak of the Second World War.


Tom tells us about the greatest race of all time, whilst Dominic reveals he is somewhat of an Olympics sceptic.
