Olympic games of ancient greece2 l.jpg
Olympic Games of ancient Greece

  • They date back to some 3000 years ago, in Greece, when sport competitions were organized. They were a mixture of sport, culture and religion. Olympia was one of the cities where these games took place, hence the modern name, Olimpiads.

  • In Greece the army had an important role, they were almost all the time at war. The practice of physical exercise was very important for that reason. This made very easy to create the games.

MYTHOLOGICAL ORIGIN

  • There are some theories over this origin, one of them is that Zeus was who created the olimpiads to celebrate his victory over the Titans. This is the religious conection with the cult to the god Zeus in the games at Olimpia (king of Gods).

  • In other games the cults are to different Gods.

Possible real origin l.jpg
POSSIBLE REAL ORIGIN

  • In the X and IX b.c. there were some summer games that peasants celebrated every four years.

  • In 884 b.c.three cities (Elis, Sparta and Pisa) who agreed a peace treaty to celebrate the games. At that time, both athletes and pilgrims were untouchable. That peace was called olimpic peace or Ekecheiria.

  • In 776 b.c. we have the first news of an olympic winners’ list. The first one was called r Koribos from Elide

Participation at the olympic games l.jpg
PARTICIPATION AT THE OLYMPIC GAMES

  • At first only the nobles could participate. Later, everybody could take part.

  • You had to be 20 to participate.

  • First they wore a kind of tunic; afterwards their naked body was their only garment.

  • Every city chose their representatives, who spent six months training at Elis, a city near Olimpia. There they chose the athletes who competed at the games.

  • The selection was made by their good physical proportions and techniques (beauty of gestures) because Greek culture was not interested in records but beauty and plasticity in movements.

  • Something has to be clear: they did not compete just to win but for their city and family honour. Winners were revered for life and cheaters had their family names stuck at the city entrance to discredit that surname.

  • Women could not watch, under death penalty, the games. So, some special games were created in honour of Hera, a goddess. They ran around the stadium, but a shorter run than men

  • There is only one exception, the priestess of goddess Demeter, this was very demanded by the nobles of the time.

  • Only virgin women could take part and they did it barefooted, their hair loose and a short skirt above their knees.

  • In the year 396 a.d. the first woman took part in men’s games, she was the princess Kiniska from Sparta riding a horse.
