        Beginnings in Greece

        Over 2,500 years ago the ancient Greeks began to stage a sporting contest every four years in the town of Olympia. The competition, which became known as The Olympic Games, attracted athletes from all over Greece to compete in events such as running, long jump, javelin and discus throwing, wrestling, boxing and chariot racing. The competition was for men only, and women were not even allowed to go and watch. Each competitor covered his body with olive oil to highlight his physique, and then competed in the nude. The event was not only a celebration of sporting ability, but also a celebration of the beauty of the human body. The Games were held until 389 A.D., after which they were outlawed by the Roman Emperor Theodore I the Great. Some historians believe he saw the event as a pagan religious festival, and therefore as a threat to Christianity and Christian morality.

        2500多年前,古希臘人開始在奧林匹亞鎮每四年舉辦一次體育比賽。 這項名為奧運會的比賽吸引了來自希臘各地的運動員參加比賽,如跑步,跳遠,標槍和鐵餅投擲,摔跤,拳擊和戰車比賽。 比賽僅針對男性,甚至不允許女性去觀看比賽。 每個參賽者用橄欖油覆蓋他的身體以突出他的體格,然后參加裸體比賽。 這次活動不僅是對運動能力的慶祝,也是對人體美的一種慶祝。 奧運會一直持續到公元前389年,之后他們被羅馬皇帝Theodore I the Great取締。 一些歷史學家認為他認為這個事件是一個異教徒的宗教節日,因此對基督教和基督教道德構成了威脅。
