In 2004, when Athens hosted the Games of the 28th Olympiad, we proposed an exercise to match the names of the sporting events of the Modern Olympic Games to their corresponding icons, in our digital magazine at the time, the CELLEP Team.
There have been few changes in the Olympic Program since then. The International Olympic Committee has removed baseball and softball from the 2012 program. In October 2009, they included golf and rugby sevens as part of the program for Rio de Janeiro.
The 2012 Summer Olympics, the 30th Olympiad, is being held in London, United Kingdom, making it the first city to host the Games three times. When Rio de Janeiro is the host city of the 2016 Olympics, it will become the first South American city to host the event.
