Released to coincide with the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, this issue explores the ancient origins and modern rebirth of the world's greatest sporting event. Read about the ancient Greek concept of agon and how it led to the development of the Ancient Olympic Games; explore the sanctuary dedicated to Zeus in ancient Olympia; and discover why cheating in the games is by no means a modern phenomenon.

Then skip forward millenia to Pierre de Coubertin and how his vision led to the rebirth of the institution with the hosting of the first modern Olympic Games in 1896 in the Greek capital's marvelous Panathenaic stadium. Read about Spyros Louis, the winner of the first marathon, and other great figures in Olympic history, as well as about the Games' darker side.
