Individual players, coaches, even entire teams have been caught trying to up their advantage in one way or another. As the saying goes however, cheaters never prosper and at some point they are caught. At best they lose their standing or their metals. At worst, they are barred from participating at the Games for years or for life. Some wonder if the risk of being caught even makes the cheating worth it. Maybe they feel they will never be caught, that they can somehow slip under the radar and have their moment in the spotlight. In an event as big as the Olympics, there’s nowhere to hide and eventually the truth will out. In every professional sport there is an aspect of cheating. Whether disqualified for doping or discredited for bribing the judges, in the end cheaters never really win. Here are ten Olympic Games cheaters from over the years.

10 Olympic Athletes Who Were Caught Cheating At The Games

10 Athletes who embarrassed themselves by cheating at the Olympics. 5 OLYMPIC ATHLETES Caught CHEATING At The Games https://youtu.be/ipDO7rWK_4o Subscribe: https://goo.gl/Hnoaw3 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- We love watching athletes competing against one another during the Olympics, but some of them are less than honorable. Today, we are going to expose a long history of cheaters going all the way back to 1904. That was the year that runner Fred Lorz decided to just skip the middle of a race and take a car instead. If you think that’s brazen, wait until you hear about how Madeline de Jesus won her race after she pulled her hamstring. We had to admit, as wrong as cheating is, the way that Boris Onishchenko rigged up his fencing was pretty ingenious. Getting caught using illegal substances at the Olympics is bad, but Ben Johnson got caught not once, not twice, but three times! Michelle Smith was never officially caught, but she did get busted for tampering with her test results. Cameron van der Burgh confessed to cheating during his swimming event, and they even had to implement new cameras because of it. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheTalko Twitter: https://twitter.com/thetalko Instagram: https://instagram.com/the_talko ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For more videos and articles visit: http://www.thetalko.com/

Ancient Olympic Games | Wikipedia audio article

This is an audio version of the Wikipedia Article: Ancient Olympic Games Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone. You can find other Wikipedia audio articles too at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuKfABj2eGyjH3ntPxp4YeQ You can upload your own Wikipedia articles through: https://github.com/nodef/wikipedia-tts "The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing." - Socrates SUMMARY ======= The ancient Olympic Games were originally a festival, or celebration of and for Zeus; later, events such as a footrace, a javelin contest, and wrestling matches were added. The Olympic Games (Ancient Greek: Ὀλύμπια, Olympia, "the Olympics"; also Ὀλυμπιάς, Olympias, "the Olympiad") were a series of athletic competitions among representatives of city-states and one of the Panhellenic Games of ancient Greece. They were held in honor of Zeus, and the Greeks gave them a mythological origin. The first Olympics is traditionally dated to 776 BC. They continued to be celebrated when Greece came under Roman rule, until the emperor Theodosius I suppressed them in AD 393 as part of the campaign to impose Christianity as the State religion of Rome. The games were held every four years, or olympiad, which became a unit of time in historical chronologies. During the celebration of the games, an Olympic Truce was enacted so that athletes could travel from their cities to the games in safety. The prizes for the victors were olive leaf wreaths or crowns. The games became a political tool used by city-states to assert dominance over their rivals. Politicians would announce political alliances at the games, and in times of war, priests would offer sacrifices to the gods for victory. The games were also used to help spread Hellenistic culture throughout the Mediterranean. The Olympics also featured religious celebrations. The statue of Zeus at Olympia was counted as one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. Sculptors and poets would congregate each olympiad to display their works of art to would-be patrons. The ancient Olympics had fewer events than the modern games, and only freeborn Greek men were allowed to participate, although there were victorious women chariot owners. As long as they met the entrance criteria, athletes from any Greek city-state and kingdom were allowed to participate, although the Hellanodikai, the officials in charge, allowed king Alexander I of Macedon to participate in the games only after he had proven his Greek ancestry. The games were always held at Olympia rather than moving between different locations as is the practice with the modern Olympic Games. Victors at the Olympics were honored, and their feats chronicled for future generations.

Athletics - Men's 100m - T44 Final - London 2012 Paralympic Games
 
08:39
"Medallists GOLD PEACOCK Jonnie GBR - Great Britain SILVER BROWNE Richard USA - United States of America BRONZE FOURIE Arnu RSA - South Africa LONDON, 6 September - A pair of British victories less than 10 minutes apart, with wheelchair racer David WEIR (GBR) and lower-leg amputee sprinter Jonnie PEACOCK (GBR) triumphing in two of the most high-profile athletics events at the London 2012 Paralympic Games, sent the Olympic Stadium spectators into euphoria on Thursday night. PEACOCK succeeded Beijing 100m champion Oscar PISTORIUS (RSA) as the man to beat in the T44 men's 100m with a superb start that saw him ahead after just 10m. It was a lead that he was never to relinquish despite being pressed hard all the way to the line, which he crossed in a Paralympic record of 10.90, just 0.05 away from his own world record set earlier this summer.The 19-year-old Briton showed his maturity by living up to all the expectations heaped on his young shoulders, as the roars of 'PEACOCK, PEACOCK' rang out around the Olympic Stadium prior to the gun being fired. The unheralded Richard BROWNE (USA) provided a challenge from an unexpected direction and finished second in a personal best 11.03. ""It's surreal. For the past four days I've been in the Village. I've been trying to keep focus for that time but when you've got guys like David (WEIR, GBR) going out and getting golds you just want to go out and be a part of that. It hasn't really sunk in yet. I don't think it will ever sink in. When I crossed the line and I'd won I was waiting for the time of the board and it was a relief to win."" - Jonnie PEACOCK said For further information, please visit http://www.paralympic.org.

The Olympic Games are considered the world's foremost sports competition with more than 200 nations participating. The Olympic Games are held every four years, with the Summer and Winter Games alternating by occurring every four years but two years apart. Their creation was inspired by the ancient Olympic Games, which were held in Olympia, Greece, from the 8th century BC to the 4th century AD. Baron Pierre de Coubertin founded the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in 1894, leading to the first modern Games in Athens in 1896. The IOC is the governing body of the Olympic Movement, with the Olympic Charter defining its structure and authority. The evolution of the Olympic Movement during the 20th and 21st centuries has resulted in several changes to the Olympic Games. Some of these adjustments include the creation of the Winter Olympic Games for snow and ice sports, the Paralympic Games for athletes with a disability, the Youth Olympic Games for athletes aged 14 to 18, the five Continental games (Pan American, African, Asian, European, and Pacific), and the World Games for sports that are not contested in the Olympic Games. The Deaflympics and Special Olympics are also endorsed by the IOC. The IOC has had to adapt to a variety of economic, political, and technological advancements. As a result, the Olympics has shifted away from pure amateurism, as envisioned by Coubertin, to allowing participation of professional athletes. The growing importance of mass media created the issue of corporate sponsorship and commercialisation of the Games. World wars led to the cancellation of the 1916, 1940, and 1944 Games. Large boycotts during the Cold War limited participation in the 1980 and 1984 Games. The latter, however, attracted 140 National Olympic Committees, which was a record at the time.The Olympic Movement consists of international sports federations (IFs), National Olympic Committees (NOCs), and organising committees for each specific Olympic Games. As the decision-making body, the IOC is responsible for choosing the host city for each Games, and ...

The first Winter Olympics, the 1924 Winter Olympics, were held in Chamonix, France. The modern Olympic games were inspired by the ancient Olympic Games, which were held in Olympia, Greece, from the 8th century BC to the 4th century AD. Baron Pierre de Coubertin founded the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in 1894, leading to the first modern Summer Games in Athens, Greece in 1896. The IOC is the governing body of the Olympic Movement, with the Olympic Charter defining its structure and authority. The original five Winter Olympics sports (broken into nine disciplines) were bobsleigh, curling, ice hockey, Nordic skiing (consisting of the disciplines military patrol, cross-country skiing, Nordic combined, and ski jumping), and skating (consisting of the disciplines figure skating and speed skating). The Games were held every four years from 1924 to 1936, interrupted in 1940 and 1944 by World War II, and resumed in 1948. Until 1992 the Winter and Summer Olympic Games were held in the same years, but in accordance with a 1986 decision by the IOC to place the Summer and Winter Games on separate four-year cycles in alternating even-numbered years, the next Winter Olympics after 1992 was in 1994. The Winter Games have evolved since their inception. Sports and disciplines have been added and some of them, such as Alpine skiing, luge, short track speed skating, freestyle skiing, skeleton, and snowboarding, have earned a permanent spot on the Olympic programme. Some others, including curling and bobsleigh, have been discontinued and later reintroduced; others have been permanently discontinued, such as military patrol, though the modern Winter Olympic sport of biathlon is descended from it. Still others, such as speed skiing, bandy and skijoring, were demonstration sports but never incorporated as Olympic sports. The rise of television as a global medium for communication enhanced the profile of the Games. It generated income via the sale of broadcast rights and advertising, which has become lucrative for the IOC. This allowed outside interests, such as television companies and corporate sponsors, to exert influence. The IOC has had to address numerous criticisms over the decades like internal scandals, the use of performance-enhancing drugs by Winter Olympians, as well as a political boycott of the Winter Olympics. Nations have used the Winter (as well as Summer) Games to proclaim the superiority of their political systems. The Winter Olympics has been hosted on three continents by twelve different countries. The Games have been held four times in the United States (in 1932, 1960, 1980 and 2002); three times in France (in 1924, 1968 and 1992); and twice each in Austria (1964, 1976), Canada (1988, 2010), Japan (1972, 1998), Italy (1956, 2006), Norway (1952, 1994), and Switzerland (1928, 1948). Also, the Games have been held just once each in Germany (1936), Yugoslavia (1984), Russia (2014) and South Korea (2018). The IOC has select ...

These Olympic medal counts do not include the 1906 Intercalated Games which are no longer recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) as official Games. The IOC itself does not publish all-time tables, and publishes unofficial tables only per single Games. This table was thus compiled by adding up single entries from the IOC database.The results are attributed to the IOC country code as currently displayed by the IOC database. Usually, a single code corresponds to a single National Olympic Committee (NOC). When different codes are displayed for different years, medal counts are combined in the case of a simple change of IOC code (such as from HOL to NED for the Netherlands) or simple change of country name (such as from Ceylon to Sri Lanka). As the medals are attributed to each NOC, not all totals include medals won by athletes from that country for another NOC, such as before independence of that country (see individual footnotes for special cases such as combined teams). Names in italic are national entities that no longer exist. The totals of NOCs are not combined with those of their predecessors and successors.

Here are 5 athletes who cheated at the Olympics and got caught. 10 Olympic Athletes Who Were Caught Cheating At The Games https://youtu.be/CJQDf1_JFSA Subscribe to our channel: http://goo.gl/9CwQhg For copyright matters please contact us at: [email protected] The Olympic Games bring the world together like no other sport. Every four years in February, July and August athletes from around the world gather to compete in dozens of various sports. Much like the athletes, we the spectators gather around our televisions and live streams to watch our countrymen compete for the gold. The games have drama, tension, glory and disappointment for everyone. However, the Olympic Games also have cheaters – and a lot of them. Over the years, many athletes have been caught cheating during the games. In fact, it’s become such a great problem that entire countries are now getting banned from competing. From taking illegal substances to using “special” techniques to just being plain poor sports, these following athletes stand out for their cheating ways - and each is a little different in how they did it. Of course, every circumstance is different and even today, often years later, people are still divided on certain cases of cheating and the degrees of severity.

It was published by Nintendo in Japan and by Sega in other regions, released on the Wii in November 2007 and the Nintendo DS handheld in January 2008. The first official video game of the 2008 Summer Olympic Games, it is licensed by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) through exclusive licensee International Sports Multimedia (ISM), and is the first official crossover game to feature characters from both the Mario and Sonic the Hedgehog series. Mario & Sonic on the Wii and DS is a collection of twenty-four events based on the Olympic Games. Players assume the role of a Nintendo or Sega character, using the Wii Remote to mimic sports actions such as swinging a paddle. The DS version uses the stylus and button controls. Both games follow rules and regulations of the specific sports. Sega adopted the IOC's mission of promoting a sportsmanship and interest young people in the Olympics by using its characters; following this theme, Nintendo allowed Sega to include Mario with Sonic the Hedgehog, created by Sega as a mascot to rival Mario in the early 1990s. Critics praised the multiplayer interaction of the Wii game and variety of events of both versions, but criticized the Wii version for its complexity and its DS counterpart for not offering the same interaction between players. The Wii game was awarded the "Best Wii game of 2007" at the Games Convention in Leipzig. Mario & Sonic sold over ten million units and started a series of related sport video games to coincide with upcoming Olympic events.

10 Athletes who faced controversies that ruined their careers. Subscribe: https://goo.gl/Hnoaw3 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Being an Olympic athlete is an honor, but sadly, some people don’t live up to our expectations. There have been many instances of shocking instances of cheating at the Olympic games, most of which end up ruining the athlete’s careers. We’ve all been angry at a ref at some point, but Angel Matos went way too far, earning him a lifetime ban from his sport. Then there’s the case of Tonya Harding, which is as notorious as it is controversial. Some athletes like Justin Gatlin and LaShawn Merritt came up with creative excuses for their violations, but they’re probably more embarrassing than the truth would have been. Tatyana Firova and her fellow Russian athletes were ordered to return their silver medals, but they simply refused to, which we didn’t know was an option! And of course, we have Lance Armstrong. This disgraced former athlete is now a villain in the public eye, which has cost him an estimated $100 million. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheTalko Twitter: https://twitter.com/thetalko Instagram: https://instagram.com/the_talko ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For more videos and articles visit: http://www.thetalko.com/

The most recent Olympics were held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) organises the Games and oversees the host city's preparations. In each Olympic event, gold medals are awarded for first place, silver medals are awarded for second place, and bronze medals are awarded for third place; this tradition began in 1904. The Winter Olympic Games were created due to the success of the Summer Olympics. The Olympics have increased in scope from a 42-event competition with fewer than 250 male competitors from 14 nations in 1896, to 306 events with 11,238 competitors (6,179 men, 5,059 women) from 206 nations in 2016. The Summer Olympics has been hosted on five continents by a total of nineteen countries. The United States has hosted the Games four times (in 1904, 1932, 1984 and 1996); this is more times than any other nation. The Games have been held three times in the United Kingdom (in 1908, 1948 and 2012); twice each in Greece (1896, 2004), France (1900, 1924), Germany (1936, 1972) and Australia (1956, 2000); and once each in Sweden (1912), Belgium (1920), Netherlands (1928), Finland (1952), Italy (1960), Japan (1964), Mexico (1968), Canada (1976), Soviet Union (1980), South Korea (1988), Spain (1992), China (2008) and Brazil (2016). The IOC has selected Tokyo, Japan, to host the Summer Olympics for a second time in 2020. The 2024 Summer Olympics will be held in Paris, France, for a third time, exactly one hundred years after the city's last Summer Olympics in 1924. The IOC has also selected Los Angeles, California, to host its third Summer Games in 2028. To date, only five countries have participated in every Summer Olympic Games – Australia, France, Great Britain, Greece and Switzerland. The United States leads the all-time medal table for the Summer Olympics.

10 Craziest Records Broken At The Winter Olympics
 
12:18
10 Biggest Olympic world records. Subscribe to our channel: http://goo.gl/9CwQhg For copyright matters please contact us at: [email protected] Athletics is generally a thankless pursuit. Unless you’re a member of a major professional sports league, much of your life will be exhausting your mental and physical capabilities for a mere chance at success. As an athlete, you will find no shortage of opportunities to compete and test yourself against others, but you will most likely fail. If you’re one of those rare competitors who succeed at a single level, there are still many more levels to conquer before you have that chance at greatness. And even once you’ve left all national competitors in your wake and have been invited to the Olympic qualifiers, competing against athletes from all over the world, you still need to place high, or you’ll wash out and fall back to zero, having to start over again or give up entirely. Further, even if you make the Olympics, greatness is achieved not merely by competing, or even medaling, but by breaking records. Then, only then, will your name not fade with the closing ceremony - and there will remain that ever-present chance that your triumph will be evoked by strangers, making the universe a little less lonely, and death a little less final. That’s what the following athletes feel – if we’re gracious enough to remember.

This was the first time that China had hosted the Summer Olympics, but the third time that the Games had been held in East Asia, following the 1964 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan, and the 1988 Olympics in Seoul, South Korea. These were the third Olympic Games staged in a socialist country, after the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow, Soviet Union, and the 1984 Winter Olympics in Sarajevo, Yugoslavia. Beijing was awarded the 2008 Games over four competitors on 13 July 2001, having won a majority of votes from members of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) after two rounds of voting. The Government of the People's Republic of China promoted the Games and invested heavily in new facilities and transportation systems. A total of 37 venues were used to host the events, including twelve constructed specifically for use at the Games. The equestrian events were held in Hong Kong, making this the third Olympics for which the events were held under the jurisdiction of two different NOCs. The sailing events were contested in Qingdao, while the football events took place in several different cities. The official logo for the 2008 Games, titled "Dancing Beijing", featured a stylized calligraphic character jīng (京, means capital) in reference to the host city. The Beijing Olympics were the most watched sporting event in history, attracting 4.7 billion people worldwide (two-third of world population), and gaining entries in the Guinness World Records as the "Largest TV audience for an event", "Most participants at a Summer Olympic Games", "Longest distance for an Olympic torch relay" and "Most watched US television program of all time". The event sets numerous world and Olympics records in the history of Sports, and is also the most expensive Summer Olympics of all time and second most expensive overall, after the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. The opening ceremony was lauded by spectators and numerous international presses as spectacular and spellbinding, and by many accounts "the greatest ever in the history of Olympics".An unprecedented 87 countries won at least one medal during the Games. China won the most gold medals, with 48, and became only the seventh different team to top an overall Olympic medal tally, winning a total of 100 medals overall. The United States placed second in the gold medal tally but won the highest number of medals overall, with a total of 112. The third place in the gold medal tally was achieved by Russia. Beijing has been selected to host the 2022 Winter Olympics; it would then become the first city ever to host both a Summer and Winter Games.

The boycott involved 14 Eastern Bloc countries and allies, led by the Soviet Union, which initiated the boycott on May 8, 1984. Boycotting countries organized another major event, called the Friendship Games, in July and August 1984. Although the boycott led by the Soviet Union affected a number of Olympic events that were normally dominated by the absent countries, 140 nations still took part in the games, which was a record at the time.

Pyeongchang Olympics 2018: What South Korea Doesn't Want You To Know

The Truth About The South Korean Olympic Games 2018. Subscribe: https://goo.gl/Hnoaw3 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Olympics should be a time for countries to come together and engage in some classic and friendly competition with one another. However, more and more signs are starting to indicate that this year’s 2018 Winter Olympics may be a disaster. They’re being hosted in Pyeongchang, South Korea, and we may have more to worry about than just North Korea. Russia has been banned from openly entering the competition due to a scandal, but are insisting on sending their athletes anyways. A new confirmed case of bird flu has popped up in South Korea, which could be devastating and spread quickly. In a case of perfect timing, a nearby hospital just caught on fire, making it the worst fire disaster to happen in South Korea in over a decade! Perhaps unsurprisingly, ticket sales for the event have been poor. Even the people of South Korea don’t seem interested in attending! Oh, and did we mention the stadium doesn’t have a roof and they are expecting freezing temperatures? ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheTalko Twitter: https://twitter.com/thetalko Instagram: https://instagram.com/the_talko ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For more videos and articles visit: http://www.thetalko.com/

The first event, the group stage in women's football, began on 25 July at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, followed by the opening ceremonies on 27 July. 10,768 athletes from 204 National Olympic Committees (NOCs) participated.Following a bid headed by former Olympic champion Sebastian Coe and then-Mayor of London Ken Livingstone, London was selected as the host city on 6 July 2005 during the 117th IOC Session in Singapore, defeating bids from Moscow, New York City, Madrid, and Paris. London became the first city to host the modern Olympics three times, having previously hosted the Summer Games in 1908 and in 1948.Construction for the Games involved considerable redevelopment, with an emphasis on sustainability. The main focus was a new 200-hectare (490-acre) Olympic Park, constructed on a former industrial site at Stratford, East London. The Games also made use of venues that already existed before the bid.The Games received widespread acclaim for their organisation, with the volunteers, the British military and public enthusiasm praised particularly highly. The opening ceremony, directed by Danny Boyle, received widespread acclaim throughout the world, particular praise from the British public and a minority of widely ranging criticisms from some social media sites. During the Games, Michael Phelps became the most decorated Olympic athlete of all time, winning his 22nd medal. Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Brunei entered female athletes for the first time, so that every currently eligible country has sent a female competitor to at least one Olympic Games. Women's boxing was included for the first time, thus the Games became the first at which every sport had female competitors. These were the final Olympic Games under the IOC presidency of Jacques Rogge. The final medal tally was led by the United States, followed by China and host Great Britain. Several world and Olympic records were set at the games. Though there were several controversies, the 2012 games were deemed highly successful with the rising standards of competition amongst nations across the world, packed stadiums and smooth organisation. Furthermore, the focus on sporting legacy and post-games venue sustainability was seen as a blueprint for future Olympics.

The 2012 Olympic Games Exposed (2/2)
 
09:18
In this video, we will expose what we feel is going to occur at the 2012 Olympics (Opening Ceremony) in London. We also provide evidence to back up our assertion. **Link to the Michael Jackson Assassination article for those who can't read it in the videos. (Part 1 of the Youtube videos: 6:47 to 6:55) and (19:09 to 19:17 in the full video.) http://www.fourwinds10.net/siterun_data/health/intentional_death/news.php?q=1246050100 Notable Excerpts: "FSB sources are reporting to President Medvedev today that American pop icon Michael Jackson was "most assuredly" assassinated by the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) after an examination of data transmitted by a Russian Military's Kosmos 2450 satellite show "conclusively" that immediately prior to the music stars death in Los Angeles an electromagnetic pulse consistent in pattern to EMR weapons looted from the former Soviet Union by the United States was employed at the "exact coordinates" of the rock stars home." "To the reason behind the CIA needing to assassinate Michael Jackson, these reports continue, was an out of court settlement the pop icon signed with son of the king of Bahrain, Sheikh Abdullah bin Hamad al-Khalifa, this past November in London, and which stated, in part, that in exchange for millions of dollars previously lent to Mr. Jackson by the Sheikh, Mr. Jackson would allow his sold-out United Kingdom concerts to be a "platform" for warning the World of a soon to occur mass genocide event." What do we feel is going to happen? A false flag nuclear attack that will be yet another step towards the New World Order that we feel will either start World War 3 or trigger the quarantining of citizens all over the world.

During the Hellenistic period, beginning with Ephorus, it was used as a calendar epoch. Converting to the modern BC/AD dating system the first Olympiad began in the summer of 776 BC and lasted until the summer of 772 BC, when the second Olympiad would begin with the commencement of the next games. By extrapolation to the Gregorian calendar, the 2nd year of the 699th Olympiad began in (Northern-Hemisphere) mid-summer 2018. A modern Olympiad refers to a four-year period beginning on the opening of the Olympic Games for the summer sports. The first modern Olympiad began in 1896, the second in 1900, and so on (the 31st began in 2016: see the Olympic Charter). The ancient and modern Olympiads would have synchronised had there been a year zero between the Olympiad of 4 BC and the one of 4 AD. But as the Gregorian calendar goes directly from 1 BC to 1 AD, the ancient Olympic cycle now lags the modern cycle by one year.

Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone.
