Posted by Nancy on September 26, 2013
The Olympic Games which began in 1986 and which has brought the thrill of athletic excellence to countless millions of viewers will bring their summer games to the city of Tokyo in 2020. The site for the 2016 summer games will be Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. If you are one of the many fans looking forward to watching your countrymen compete in basketball jerseys, cycling jerseys, football jerseys or in dozens of other athletic contests you will be tuned in to the action that will take place in both of these cities. The 1940 Summer Olympics were scheduled to take place in Tokyo but were cancelled due to war. Other cities which have served as hosts for this prestigious event are Athens, Paris, Los Angeles (twice) and Stockholm. In all, 22 different cities have hosted the summer games. The United States has been fortunate to lead in the number of times they have hosted the games at eight years.
