For the ongoing games in Rio, see 2016 Summer Olympics. Their creation was inspired by the ancient Olympic Games, which were held in Olympia, Greece, from the 8th century BC until the 4th century AD. Baron Pierre de Coubertin founded the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in 1894, the IOC is the governing body of the Olympic Movement with the Olympic Charter, to determine its structure and strength.

The evolution of the Olympic Movement during the 20th and 21st centuries has resulted in several changes to the Olympic Games. Some of these adjustments include the creation of the Olympic Winter Games for ice and winter sports, the Paralympic Games for athletes with disabilities, as well as the Youth Olympic Games for teenage athletes. The IOC has had to adapt to a variety of economic, political and technological progress. As a result, the Olympics have moved away from pure amateurism, as provided by Coubertin, to allow participation of professional athletes. The growing importance of the mass media created the issue of corporate sponsorship and commercialization of the Games. World War II led to the cancellation of 1916, 1940 and 1944 Games. Large boycotts during the Cold War limited participation in the 1980 and 1984 games.
