Ancient Exercise


The Olympic festival lasted about 5 days but the preparation took the whole of the preceding year.

During the period of the Olympics, villagers would all exercise but only a few would take part in the events compared with  today. The first Olympic event was the running race.

The athletes trained and performed naked because they liked showing off their bodies and they also found it easier to compete.
