Abstract:

With the historical background set, this book brings the original Olympic games to life with a decription of preparation, training, day-to-day programme of events, etc.

Following the five-day session of the ancient Olympics, this history describes the athletes' training regimes and the events - some familiar, some quite strange - and compares them with their modern counterparts, as well as the traditions and rituals of the ancient Greek ceremonies.
