Thank you. This is still the same project as I’ve mentioned before.
Ancient Olympics:-Athletes competed in the nude-Instead of medals, winners won olive wreaths, branches, or woolen ribbons-Married women were not allowed to watch the games and were threatened with a death sentence if they did so-The ancient Olympics were banned by Roman Emperor Theodosius I in AD 393 in order to institute Christianity as a state religion (the Olympics were thought to be a pagan festival). The games were reinstated in Athens in 1896
Modern Olympics-Gold medals have not been made entirely out of gold since 1912-The Greek team of athletes always leads the procession of athletes in the opening ceremonies, followed by the other teams in alphabetical order-Women were first allowed to compete in the second Olympic games in 1900-The first winter Olympic games were held in 1924-No Olympic games were held in 1916, 1940, or 1944 due to World Wars I and II
