History of the Games 

The Ohio Games is an amateur sports festival promoting health, fitness and character building through multi-sport competitions and physical activities. As a member of the National Congress of State Games, the Ohio Games joins 30 other states in hosting an Olympic style Summer State Games event. State Games provide an opportunity for athletes of all ages, within the state, to compete in various sporting events and earn gold, silver and bronze in their respective age categories. All winners earn a spot in the National Games of America and compete for their state against winners in other states to become a National Champion.
