According to Wikipedia, the Olympic Games has Greek roots and is considered as the world's foremost sports competition.
According to the United States' administration, the Olympic Games has American roots and is considered as the US’s first cyber-attack program.
What is “Olympic Games” and how its root became American?
Olympic Games, from an American perspective, dates back from 2006 where the US administration decided to launch a cyber-attack against the Iranian Nuclear Program. The NYTimes states that "having falsely accused Saddam Hussein of reconstituting his nuclear program in Iraq, Mr. Bush had little credibility in publicly discussing another nation’s [Iran] nuclear ambitions."
In addition, the US administration has stated that “they would only further inflame a region already at war”. Having few ‘good’ options in dealing with the Iranians, Olympic Games entered in action.
