Best Answer

Ancient Olympic athletes won a crown of leaves, sometimes dipped in gold, from the sacred tree at Olympia and a vase of olive oil with pictures of battle scenes or Olympic events. The olive oil was to sell and sometimes they also sold the vase. These are ranging from smallish to half the size of a grown man. There are still many olive oil vases today. Sometimes athletes got a statue of themselves if they were really good. The glory of winning was sometimes the best prize you could get.
