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.
