In 776 B.C., the first Olympic Games were held at the foot of Mount Olympus to honor the Greeks’
chief god, Zeus. The warm climate for outdoor activities, the need for preparedness in war, and their
lifestyle caused the Greeks to create competitive sports. Only the elite and military could participate at
first, but later the Games were open to all free Greek males who had no criminal records. The Greek
emphasized physical fitness and strength in their education of youth. Therefore, contests in running,
jumping, discus and javelin throwing, boxing, and horse and chariot racing were held in individual cities,
and the winners competed every four years at Mount Olympus. Winners were greatly honored by having
olive wreaths placed on their heads and having poems sung about their deeds. Originally these contests
were held as games of friendship, and any wars in progress were halted to allow the games to take place.
They also helped to strengthen bonds among competitors and the different cities represented.
The Greeks attached so much importance to the games that they calculated time in four-year cycles
called “Olympiads” dating from 776 B.C. The contests coincided with religious festivities and constituted
