What are the similarities between Ancient Greece and the U.S.?

Ancient Greece was a democracy, just as the US is today (however, Ancient Greece was somewhat a direct democracy while the US is a representative democracy, which is a system based off the Romans). The US also has a considerably high Greek and Greek speaking population, as of course, did Ancient Greece. Ancient Greece had, as the US partially does today (on the Pacific Coast), a Mediterranean climate. The Olympics were a sporting event from Ancient Greece and has been modernized, which the US participates and dominates in (specifically the Summer Olympics).

What was the penlty for cheating in the Olympics?

In the Ancient Olympics the punishment was to pay for the construction of a statue of Zeus (for whose honour the Olympics were held). And there must ave been a fair bit of cheating around because they were a lot of statues of Zeus at Olympia... In the Modern Olympics you get banned and stripped of your medals (which probably applied to the Ancient Olympians as well, but I don't know for certain).
