I am very old. Older than any of you here.

I show myself periodically, not always.

I took birth at The Cradle.

Very soon, I will make history.

I have become the monopoly of the affluent.

But, in the last two decades, the dragon has risen.

Trust me. You guys know me. I am very prestigious after all.

This should be easy. Guess who am I?

I think it is

The Olympic Games

I am very old. Older than any of you here.

The first Olympics is traditionally dated to 776 BC

I show myself periodically, not always.

It happens each 4 years

I took birth at The Cradle.

The Olympics started in Greece, considered the cradle of Western civilization

Very soon, I will make history.

Rio 2016 will be the first Olympics in South America

I have become the monopoly of the affluent.
But, in the last two decades, the dragon has risen.

I´m not sure but I think it is the monopoly of USA being beaten by China

Trust me. U guys know me. I am very prestigious after all.

Well...It is!
