The Ancient Olympic Games

Posted by burdujan pe 11/05/2009


Held in Olympia, Greece, from 776 BCE to 393 CE, the Olympic Games (jocurile olimpice) were a series of athletic competitions between various city-states. Originally, the games were comprised of just one event: the stadion race, a short sprint of about 190 m, or the length of the stadium. Eventually, other events were added, including wrestling, chariot racing, a pentathlon, and the hoplitodromos, a race participants ran wearing heavy armor.

Question: What did competitors wear during other events?

    [Engl] The athletes usually competed naked, not only as the weather was appropriate but also as the festival was meant to celebrate, in part, the achievements of the human body.
    Olive oil was occasionally used by the competitors, not only to keep skin smooth but also to provide an appealing look for the participants.

    [Ro] De obicei, sportivii concurau goi, nu numai când vremea era frumoasă, dar de asemenea, fiindcă festivalul sărbătorea, în parte, realizarile corpului uman.
    Uleiul de măsline a fost folosit ocazional de concurenţi, nu doar pentru a menţine pielea netedă, dar şi pentru a exterioriza o înfăţişare atrăgătoare a participanţilor.
