Chariot Racing

Chariot racing was dangerous, sometimes it even caused death or injuries. You were aloud to install spikes on your chariot to break the other persons chariot wheels. Did you know that the Olympics was about showing off how strong you were, and a religious event in those days?

Did you know that all wars had to stop for months, while the athletes travel to the stadium the Olympics were taking place in? Only Greek Men were allowed to take part in the ancient Olympics. No woman or men out of Greece were allowed to participate.
