answer to each of the questions from 21 to 30.
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 an all-out effort on the part of participants to please the gods. Any who disobeyed the rules
were dismissed and seriously punished. These athletes brought shame not only to themselves, but also
the cities they represented.
