It's not really that anybody sat down and decided that women couldn't be olympic athletes, but in ancient Greece, as in much of ancient Europe, women were regarded as the less athletic of the two genders. Ancient civilizations conformed to strict gender roles, in which men competed to be the strongest, fastest, manliest, most eligible male, and women were expected to be the "property" of their husbands, fathers and sons. It was almost unthinkable that a women was even capable of competing in the events, and it never would have been allowed.
Only in (relatively) recent times, as gender roles are being challenged, have female athletes began to rise.

Women did not participate in the Ancient Olympics. Only Greek speaking men were allowed to participate. Exception: in the chariot-race the owner of the horses was considered to be the competitor, and got the prize if they won. Women could put their horses in for the chariot race, and were considered competitors when they did.
They could be luck to participate in the para olympics.
people came from all over ancient Greece after they were approved to be in the Olympics because they had to be good enough. so pretty much anyone who was good enough to participate in the Olympics and was a citizen of a Greek city could participate in the Olympics.
