In the 19th Century Dr William Penny Brookes instigated an Olympian Games for the people of Much Wenlock and the surrounding area. Pierre de Coubertin visited and used the principles behind this event to start the Modern Olympics. The links between Much Wenlock, the modern Olympian Movement and Greece continues today and was used as part of the London bid for 2012. The Wenlock Olympian Fencing Competition takes place alongside all the other sports disciplines at this Historic event.
