Though they need to train in secrecy to prevent Israeli forces from demolishing their facilities, with financing (often from Palestinian businessmen abroad) Palestinian atheletes had the Palestinian Authority organize an Olympic Committee which brings Palestine's best athletes to the Olympics. However, a lack of funds and rights does prevent full function of the Organization.

How was Palestine created?

The question as worded is ambiguous since Palestine refers to several different things.1) Land: The lands commonly referred to by the term "the Mandate of Palestine" came into existence (according to science) hundreds of millions of years (if not billions of years ago) from interactions between the African and Arabian Plates.2) Mandate of Palestine: The British Mandate of Palestine was created during the Treaty of Versailles negotiations when the British Ambassador drew a line on a map and called it Palestine in 1919. In 1922, the area currently known as Jordan was separated jursidictionally from the Mandate of Palestine, giving the Mandate its present shape.3) Current Nation of Palestine: The Nation of Palestine was created by the Oslo Accords in 1993. This document created the Palestinian Authority which became the recognized government of the State of Palestine. Palestine has embassies in numerous countries (except most Western States) as a result. (There are also embassies from before this point in countries that did not recognize Israel before the 1960s, but they were more symbolic than representative of an actual governing agency.)
