The difference between modern and ancient Olympics is the technology that was used. Ancient olympics used olden day technology or none at all. No high quality equipment was available and each athlete did not have spikes, skins, leotards, and fancy goggles. In contrast, modern day olympians have all this which effects their performance in the pool, track, field or stadium. Also, modern olympics have cameras and technology that enables the whole world to watch and cheer their country on.

There are many differences between the ancient and modern Olympics.
Main reasons would be the appearance of the competitors i.e. men competed naked for pride and toughness. Another reason would be the sports as the ancient Olympics consisted of at most ten sports. The modern Olympics have substantially more events and soon increased throughout the ages!
in ancient Olympics athletes who won will have a lifetime supply of foods, in modern Olympics victorious athletes will have medals .. and the modern Olympics now have winter Olympics , there are more sports than in ancient Greek the ancient is a preparation for war but the modern are sporting events
Some of the differences were:
The ancient Olympics were held only throughout Greece, for Greeks; the modern Games are held around the world, for people of every nation.
The ancient games allowed only men to compete. Competition was performed almost nude. Wars were put on hold for (and sometimes, even decided by) the ancient Olympic games. Winners were often awarded expensive prizes, including land and olives (a precious commodity in ancient times).
The modern Games, until recently, had strict requirements about being an amateur. Both men and women compete, though separately. They were canceled during the World Wars. In 1980 (Moscow) and 1984 (Los Angeles), a substantial number of countries boycotted the Games, which in ancient times would have led to out-and-out war.
In addition, the modern Games have a winter sports program; the Winter Games used to be held the same year as the summer edition, but as of the Lillehammer (Norway) Games of 1994, they've been shifted by two years to be held on the even-numbered year that falls between the Summer Olympic years.
In ancient times:
Wars between all competing nations would end, competitors were only men, there were only summer games every 4 years, only at Olympia (never changing the venue), very religious event, most events were nude, women were rarely allowed to attend, festivities included drama productions. The following were competed in: Sprinting, long distance running, Wrestling, discus, shot put, Archery, long jump, weight lifting, javelin, sometimes dancing, gymnastics of balancing sorts.
Modern times;Besides the ones listed above, there are now winter sports so Olympic occur every 2 years, women can compete and watch, there are more sports, multiple venues in a single changing host nation, opening and closing ceremonies, used as political event (boycotting would never be allowed in ancient Greece). Some of the new competitions include: bicycling, marathons, swimming events, diving, synchronized swimming, gymnastics like the rings, the bar, pole vaulting, rowing, sailing, white water racing, shooting, soccer, softball, Baseball (as of 2008 being the last year), tennis, ping pong, volleyball (beach and court), and many more.
While there are a great many differences between the modern and the ancient Olympics, in terms of which sports are included, what the rules are for those sports, the number of athletes and observers, and other such details, the single greatest difference is that the ancient Olympics were competitions between different Greek athletes, involving no participation by athletes from any other nation, whereas the modern Olympics are a global event in which athletes from all over the world represent their nations.
The ancient Olympics were first held in thousands of years ago. In 1896, the modern Olympics began. The contestants in the ancient Olympic game were mainly men and competed in nude for toughness and braveness. A prominent difference between the games were that the ancient Olympics were held in honor of the Greek god, Zeus, yet in the modern Olympics, competitors compete in favor of reward and self-best.
In modern Olympics, contestants are of both genders. This gives women the right to participate, when in ancient Olympics, there were little women participants. In the ancient Olympics, the only women who took part were unmarried virgins. These participants did not attract as much attention as the men who dominated the Olympics in the ancient times.
This gives the main difference between the modern and ancient Olympics.
then they wore braids in their hair and now they dont. they were naked
In ancient times woman were not able to watch the games or they would get thrown off a cliff and now everyone can watch them. That I think is pretty much it.
The ancient Olympics was a religious observance using athletic competitions. Any freeborn Greek male could participate. It was held every 4 years during the summer in Olympia, Greece.
The ancient Olympics had competitions in running, fighting (boxing and wrestling), Chariot Racing and a pentathlon (wresting, running, long jump, javelin throw, and discus throw).
The modern Olympics is a cultural and political event staged as athletic competitions and is held every 4 years in summer and in winter at a different location each time. Competitions are held in the participating countries throughout the four years before an Olympics to determine who will be the members of each country's Olympic team and only those can compete in the Olympics.
The modern Olympics involves many more sports than the ancient games, including team sports that were unknown to the ancient Greeks.
A lot of things like the games there are more games and the clothing (the wore nude)
Ancient Olympics were only hosted in Olympia
