They would be killed ... but it's extremely unlikely that a woman could compete because they would play the Olympics naked, so that it was clear that all the athletes were men.

Unmarried women were allowed to attend the games, since the Olympics were thought to be a good place for them to meet their future husbands. Married women were not allowed to attend, under penalty of death.
