Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The antiquated Olympic amusements just permitted individuals of Greek plunge to partake. The Salt Lake City Olympics highlight 2600 competitors from 77 nations. Just a couple of hundred competitors took part in the antiquated amusements. 

Just men were permitted to contend in the old Greek recreations. Athletic preparing in antiquated Greece was a piece of each free male national's instruction. The primary ladies to contend in the Olympics were Marie Ohnier and Mme. Brohy. They took an interest in croquet diversions in the 1900 Olympics. 


The antiquated Olympic diversions were held as a religious occasion to respect the Greek God, Zeus. A hundred bulls were ordinarily given as a penance. Frenchman Pierre nobleman De Coubertin, who restored the Olympic amusements in the nineteenth century, demanded that they highlight the universal rivalry of competitors. 


The antiquated Olympics yielded one and only champ. A crown of olive leaves was put on his head and a statue in his picture was raised in Olympia. The present Salt Lake City Olympics highlight 15 sorts of occasions, each with a Gold, Bronze, and Silver medalist (aside from when a diversion is fixed by the French, in which case two gold awards are given). 


Winter Olympics are a cutting edge development. The antiquated Greeks never considered including skiing or other icy climate occasions (for evident reasons). The principal winter Olympics was held in 1924 in Chamonix, France. Two hundred and fifty-eight competitors took an interest from seventeen nations. 


The antiquated diversions were constantly held in Olympia. Just the first cutting edge Olympics has been held in Greece, however the following recreations will be too. 


By John Sayle Watterson. Mr. Watterson is the creator of College Football: History, Spectacle, Controversy (Baltimore: Johns Hopkins University Press, 2000). 

I was satisfied to see that George Mason University understudy Kelley Duddleson had pointed out our disparities between the present day and old Olympics. Unquestionably the Ancient Olympics and early Modern Olympics need significantly more consideration than they get. On the other hand, five of Ms. Duddleson's six focuses should be adjusted or set in more extensive connection. 

At first the Ancient Olympics which date at any rate from 776 BC were basically as Ms. Duddleson depicts them. They were devoted to the Greek God Zeus, and the recreations were held in Olympia. They were shut to ladies however it's said that a mother who needed to see her child camouflaged herself as a male mentor (after this, all coaches and competitors needed to enter the stadia in the buff). Then again, nobody would differ with Ms. Duddleson's portrayal of the winter recreations. The Winter Olympics are, as she puts it,"a current creation." alternate focuses in her brief article are less clean or unmistakably up target. 

1) The Olympic amusements just open to individuals of Greek drop. At first this was the situation. By the Roman time, different nationalities had sullied the ethnic virtue of the Greek amusements. The Roman ruler Tiberius not just took an interest as an adolescent in the Olympic amusements however won the four-stallion chariot race. The Emperor Nero organized an uncommon Olympiad and as anyone might expect triumphed in a musical occasion that he himself had composed. 

2. Just men were permitted to contend in the old Greek diversions. In truth, there were isolated amusements for ladies in Olympia committed to the goddess Herea which comprised of wrestling, foot, and chariot races. Ladies later took an interest in"ancient Greek amusements, for example, the Pythian, Isthmian, and Nemean. With respect to the female croquet players in 1900, they played second fiddle to a lady golfer-as one of Ms. Duddleston's reinforcement articles demonstrates. As indicated by David Wallechinsky in The Complete Book of the Olympics, the first lady to win a gold in the present day Olympics was Margaret Abbott, a Chicago socialite who was contemplating workmanship in Paris in 1900. When she learned of the Olympic golf rivalry, she got her clubs and entered the nine-opening rivalry. The five-foot-eleven-inch Abbott shot a 47 to win the gold and beat out a Swiss contender and a kindred American, Hager Pratt. 

3. The old Olympic recreations were held as a religious occasion to respect the Greek God Zeus. Valid, in any event in their beginnings. Inside of a few centuries, the Olympics turned into a much more business display, in which the accentuation among the profoundly proficient competitors was on winning and athletic ability. In a few ways, the opposition of Greek city states looks like an advanced's microcosm Olympic accentuation on universal rivalry. 

4. The antiquated Olympics yielded stand out occasion. On the off chance that Ms. Duddleson implies that there was one and only rivalry, she needs to take another look. The old amusements highlighted foot races, the pentathlon, chariot and stallion races, foot races, boxing, and wrestling, to name a superior's percentage known occasions. 

5. Genuine, the winter amusements are a present day development. Nobody skied or tobogganed down the inclines of Mount Olympus. 

6. Just the first current Olympics has been held in Greece, however the following recreations will be also. Yes, however shouldn't something be said about the lesser-known 1906 amusements, the between time or"intercalary" recreations held in Athens? As indicated by games student of history Allen Guttmann,"these diversions were a sop to the Greeks, to ease the intense dissatisfaction they felt when the IOC declined to acknowledge their arrangements to make Greece the perpetual site of the Olympic amusements." Whether these recreations were Olympic or semi Olympic has long been in question.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

Ancient and modern Olympics, the birth of a culture

The antiquated Olympic Games were at first a one-day occasion until 684 BC when they were stretched out to three days. In the fifth century B.C., the Games were stretched out again to cover five days. 

The antiquated Games included running, long jump shot put, javelin, boxing, pankration and equestrian occasions.

differences between ancient and modern Olympic

1.The ancient Olympic games just permitted individuals of Greek descent to partake. The Salt Lake City Olympics highlight 2600 competitors from 77 nations. Just a couple of hundred athletes took part in the antiquated amusements.

2.Only men were allowed to compete in the ancient Greek games. Athletic training in ancient Greece was part of every free male citizen's education. The first women to compete in the Olympics were Marie Oher and Mme. Brophy. They participated in croquet games in the 1900 Olympics.

3.The ancient Olympic games were held as a religious event to honor the Greek God, Zeus. A hundred oxen were typically given as a sacrifice. Frenchman Pierre baron De Coubertin, who helped revive the Olympic games in the nineteenth century, insisted that they feature the international competition of athletes.

4The ancient Olympics yielded only one winner. A crown of olive leaves was placed on his head and a statue in his image was erected in Olympia. The current Salt Lake City Olympics feature 15 types of events, each with a Gold, Bronze, and Silver medalist (except when a game is rigged by the French, in which case two gold medals are given).

5Winter Olympics are a modern invention. The ancient Greeks never thought of featuring skiing or other cold-weather events (for obvious reasons). The first winter Olympics was held in 1924 in Chamonix, France. Two hundred and fifty-eight athletes participated from seventeen countries

6The ancient games were always held in Olympia. Only the first modern Olympics has been held in greece.

The greeks view for women.

in ancient Greek society, females were given little voice, if any, insignificant choices. They were denied the opportunity to pick whom to wed. At the point when a young lady was to wed, she was "given in marriage by her male relatives and (her) decision had no legitimate bearing on the agreement".In ancient cultures, women were seen as objects.

ownership of inheritance was very unfair to women. In old Greece, "a lady's property dependably stayed separate from her husband's" on the off chance that she had any by any stretch of the imagination. The spouse had aggregate control of the property "while he lived," and "control went to their children (if grown-up) or their guardians when he passed on"

women in ancient Olympics

Ladies were not permitted as observers at the Olympic recreations. They needed to stay at the opposite side of the waterway Alpheios amid the diversions. The only lady to go to the games was the priestess of Demeter. A law stipulated that each other female onlooker must be thrown from a high cliff. For different games, such laws are not known. It is, however, plausible that ladies were likewise not permitted as onlookers of other athletic challenges. The Roman head Augustus ordered a law that ladies were permitted in the theater when the fifth hour, on the grounds that before the fifth-hour athletic challenges occurred there.they were also not allowed to participate
