Best Answer

One of the most common things between the ancient and the modern Games is that most sports held in the ancient Games are now held in the modern Games. Both Games are held over more than one day and every fourth year. At the start of the ancient Olympic Games every competitor, judge and coach had to take an oath to agree not to cheat. But now in the modern Games competitors, judges and coaches don't have to take the oath individually, just one competitor, judge and coach says the oath, which is on behalf of all competitors, judges and coaches. In both cases, an Olympic truce is declared allowing athletes from any country to compete, even those at war or in turmoil. Importantly, the Olympic Games, allow athletes from all countries to come together peacefully to compete in a safe environment and this promotes a sense of national pride for people in all nations. At the completion of each event, both the ancient and modern Games distribute awards. In the ancient Games the award to an athlete would be palm branches and fillets or woollen ribbons; these were tied around the winners head, arms and legs. In the modern Games medals are given to first, second and third.
