Summer Olympic Games - Faster, Higher, Stronger. While many of the world’s leading athletes compete in various sporting events around the world, no other competition can touch the special luster of the Olympic Games. These Games brought back to life in 1896, representing the pinnacle of accomplishment that athletes and coaches strive for. From the spectacle of the opening ceremonies, to the colours of the Olympic Rings, the Olympic Games and the 52 sporting events under its title are in a class of their own.  In 1976 in Montreal Canada, Carson Ebanks, Gerry Kirkconnell, and Peter Milburn became the first persons to represent the Cayman Islands at the Olympic Games in Sailing. Since that time CIOC has sponsored teams to compete in the 1976, 1984, 1988, 1992, 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008 and 2012 Games in the sports of Sailing, Athletics, Cycling and Swimming.More: www.olympic.org
