The modern Olympic Games (French: Jeux olympiques) are the leading international sporting event featuring summer and winter sports competitions in which thousands of athletes participate in a variety of competitions.

The Olympic Games are held every four years, with the Summer and Winter Games alternating, meaning they each occur every four years but two years apart.
