How has the ancient Olympics influnced the modern Olympics?

The Greek Olympics were similar to our modern Olympics in the sense that people belonging to every nationality would have the chance to come togethor for a short period of time and take part in a little friendly competition. It was meant to show to all Greeks that through their mutual appreciation of athleticism, they were culturally unified. In a way it was a diplomatic gesture the same way it is today, because it showed that very distinct groups of people could find one thing in common which they could all hold respect for.

Compare and contrast ancient and modern Olympics?

The difference between modern and ancient olympics is the technology that was used. Ancient olympics used olden day technology or none at all. No high quality equipment was available and each athlete did not have spikes, skins, leotards, and fancy goggles. In contrast, modern day olympians have all this which effects their performance in the pool, track, field or stadium. Also, modern olympics have cameras and technology that enables the whole world to watch and cheer their country on. Hope this helps xo


What are two ways the ancient Olympics compare from the modern?

The old olympics, they don't wear any clothes, they all do it in nude. They had more dangerous sports like chariot racing, they had less equipment like safety gear. In the modern olymoics, first they wear clothes, and they are mostly special clothes designed to run and swim faster. They also have more sports than olden times
