Sport

When the Olympic Games was first played in Ancient Greece from 776B.C until A.D393 it was very different from m today’s Olympic Games. The athletes were all naked and no women were allowed to compete or spectate.

Athletes did not represent different countries, only themselves. There were no stop watches or record performances, only winners of each event. The events were sprinting, long jump, discus, wrestling, and javelin throwing – skills that helped soldiers in the army.
