The Olympics, or as they are officially called, The Olympic Games, gather the best athletes around the globe to compete in a variety of disciplines. Each of the athletes represents his country and the National Olympic Committee.
Modern Olympics, on the other hand, is how we refer to all tournaments organized from 1986 Athens to 2022 Beijing. Rather than another multi-sport event on an international level, the Olympics rely on principles. They show a great understanding of history, geopolitics, and power dynamics. They stand for values such as non-discrimination and women’s empowerment.
