    Sports Events of Ancient Olympic Games

    The ancient Olympic Games were initially a one-day event until 684 BC, when they were extended to three days. In the 5th century B.C., the Games were extended again to cover five days.
    The ancient Games included running, long jump, shot put, javelin, boxing, pankration and equestrian events.




    Pentathlon
    The Pentathlon became an Olympic sport with the addition of wrestling in 708 B.C., and included the following:
    Running / Jumping / Discus Throw

    Running
    Running contests included:
    the stade race, which was the pre-eminent test of speed, covering the Olympia track from one end to the other (200m foot race),
    the diaulos (two stades - 400m foot race),
    dolichos (ranging between 7 and 24 stades).



    Jumping
    Athletes used stone or lead weights called halteres to increase the distance of a jump. They held onto the weights until the end of their flight, and then jettisoned them backwards.

    Discus throw
    The discus was originally made of stone and later of iron, lead or bronze. The technique was very similar to today's freestyle discus throw.

    Wrestling
    This was highly valued as a form of military exercise without weapons. It ended only when one of the contestants admitted defeat.

    Boxing
    Boxers wrapped straps (himantes) around their hands to strengthen their wrists and steady their fingers. Initially, these straps were soft but, as time progressed, boxers started using hard leather straps, often causing disfigurement of their opponent's face.

    Pankration
    This was a primitive form of martial art combining wrestling and boxing, and was considered to be one of the toughest sports. Greeks believed that it was founded by Theseus when he defeated the fierce Minotaur in the labyrinth.

    Equestrian events
    These included horse races and chariot races and took place in the Hippodrome, a wide, flat, open space.
