In 776 B.C. the ancient Greeks began a tradition that lasted for over 1100 years. They stopped all wars and each city-state sent their best athletes to the plain at Olympia to compete for the honor of Zeus at the Olympic Games. In 2004 A.D. the modern Olympic Games will be held in Athens, Greece. This return to the country of the Games' ancient origins has the potential to be an historic event. However, the success depends on a careful plan.
