159 athletes from Greece competed in the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
Most would hear about Greek athletes from the first Olympics. Athletes often participated in the Olympics as a challenge to earn the winning title of the best athlete. For training, most athletes trained hard, but most had to run nude. And the events in the Olympics included Discus, Track, chariot racing and other sports that are still used in today's Olympics.
The athletes of the ancient Olympics were young Greek men.

The Romans did not "do" the Olympics. The Olympics were Greek contests and one had to be a citizen of a Greek city to participate. It's quite possible that a Roman, born in a Greek city could enter, but no name has come down to us. The only Roman we know for certain that participated in the Olympics was the emperor Nero, but he competed in the poetry contests, not the athletic.
