Olympic Games

The Ancient Greek Games include:

running, long jump, shot put, javelin, boxing, and other events.

The Olympics were initially an one-day event until 684 BC



Judges of ancient greece olympics were Eleans, but even though the judges were all Eleans, local Elean Greeks were still allowed to compete in the Olympics. The Elean people had such a reputation for fairness that an Elean cheating at the Games was a shock to other Greeks.
