London Olympics 2012

The first olympics began around 27,00 years ago.  Where only men could compete, and women weren’t even allowed to watch!  In 1896 where women were STILL not allowed to compete, but were able to watch.The 30th modern olympic games is about to take place in the city of London.  This is the third time they’ve hosted the olympics, the first time was in 1908 in which Dutch competitor in track and field, mother of 4, Fanny Blankers-Koen was officially named the first woman to win 4 gold medals in one game.  The Flying Housewife is what they called her.  Like Fanny, there are many other celebrities and record breakers in the olympics, and most of them are being expected to return to the games.
