Here is a story from the ancient Greek Olympics: A girl named Kallipatira was the daughter of a famous boxer but one day she was caught watching the Olympics. She was nearly beaten but luckily, seeing as she was the daughter of a famous boxer they didn’t beat her up in case they got beaten up!

They did many events for example: B B B Boxing, wrestling, racing, javelin and discus. The winners were presented with an olive wreath, palm branches and woollen ribbons. Discus: Athletes threw a heavy disk and tried to get it further than the other athletes. Javelin: Athletes threw a long wooden pole about the same length as fully grown man from a fixed point.
