The Ancient Olympic Stadium of Rhodes, Greece. 200bc
 
05:49
The Ancient Olympic Games were a series of competitions held between representatives of several city-states and kingdoms from Ancient Greece, which featured mainly athletic but also combat and chariot racing events. During the Olympic games all struggles against the participating city-states were postponed until the games were finished. The origin of these Olympics is shrouded in mystery and legend. One of the most popular myths identifies Heracles and his father Zeus as the progenitors of the Games. According to legend, it was Heracles who first called the Games "Olympic" and established the custom of holding them every four years. A legend persists that after Heracles completed his twelve labors, he built the Olympic stadium as an honor to Zeus. Following its completion, he walked in a straight line for 200 steps and called this distance a "stadion" (Greek: στάδιον, Latin: stadium, "stage"), which later became a unit of distance. Another myth associates the first Games with the ancient Greek concept of Olympic truce (ἐκεχειρία, ekecheiria). The most widely accepted date for the inception of the Ancient Olympics is 776 BC; this is based on inscriptions, found at Olympia, of the winners of a footrace held every four years starting in 776 BC. The Ancient Games featured running events, a pentathlon (consisting of a jumping event, discus and javelin throws, a foot race and wrestling), boxing, wrestling, and equestrian events. Tradition has it that Coroebus, a cook from the city of Elis, was the first Olympic champion. The Olympics were of fundamental religious importance, featuring sporting events alongside ritual sacrifices honoring both Zeus (whose famous statue by Phidias stood in his temple at Olympia) and Pelops, divine hero and mythical king of Olympia. Pelops was famous for his chariot race with King Oenomaus of Pisatis. The winners of the events were admired and immortalized in poems and statues. The Games were held every four years, and this period, known as an Olympiad, was used by Greeks as one of their units of time measurement. The Games were part of a cycle known as the Panhellenic Games, which included the Pythian Games, the Nemean Games, and the Isthmian Games. The Olympic Games reached their zenith in the 6th and 5th centuries BC, but then gradually declined in importance as the Romans gained power and influence in Greece. There is no consensus on when the Games officially ended, the most common-held date is 393 AD, when the emperor Theodosius I declared that all pagan cults and practices be eliminated. Another date cited is 426 AD, when his successor Theodosius II ordered the destruction of all Greek temples. After the demise of the Olympics, they were not held again until the late 19th century.

Ancient Olympia in Greece, Home of the Original Olympic Games
 
02:17
Olympia is a town and UNESCO World Heritage Site in Peloponnese, Greece. This was the site of the original Olympic Games from 776 BC. The Olympic Games were held every four years throughout Classical Antiquity, from the 8th century BC to the 4th century AD. The first Olympic Games were in honor of Zeus. The flame for each modern Olympic Games is still lit in the town, by a reflection of sunlight in a parabolic mirror, and carried by torch to the place where the games are to be held. The sanctuary, known as the Altis, consists of an unordered arrangement of various buildings. Enclosed within the temenos (sacred enclosure) are the Temple of Hera and Temple of Zeus, the Pelopion and the area of the altar, where the sacrifices were made. The hippodrome and later stadium were also to the east. To the north of the sanctuary can be found the Prytaneion and the Philippeion, as well as the array of treasuries representing the various city states. The Metroon lies to the south of these treasuries, with the Echo Stoa to the East. Olympia is also known for the gigantic ivory and gold statue of Zeus that used to stand there, sculpted by Pheidias, which was named one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Very close to the Temple of Zeus which housed this statue, the studio of Pheidias was excavated in the 1950s. Evidence found there, such as sculptor's tools, corroborates this opinion. The ancient ruins sit north of the Alfeios River and Mount Kronos. The Kladeos, a tributary of the Alfeios, flows around the area. Its located in the part of Greece which is called Peloponesse. In Ancient Greece, Olympia was sacred ground to the Greeks. QUESTIONS? We would like to hear from you!

Olympic Games : A Taste of the Ancient Greek Spirit
 
02:00
And now let's move to news from Israel. About one hundred children have tasted the spirit of the ancient Greek Olympic-style games in a Children's peace festival, held in Israel. Let's have a look. For more news and videos visit ☛ http://ntd.tv Follow us on Twitter ☛ http://twitter.com/NTDTelevision Add us on Facebook ☛ http://on.fb.me/s5KV2C The Archaeological Museum in Bet She'an Valley called "Footsteps in the Valley" has devoted one of the galleries entirely to the ancient Greek art. The museum has accommodated fifth grade children from various schools in Israel. The main purpose of this event was to learn the history of the ancient Greek empire... and especially about the ancient Olympic spirit based on the principles of peace, tolerance and human dignity. [Dror Segel, Manager, Archaeological Museum]: "We can see also in the pictures here that Olympic games all of in the world can be for peace and for tolerance and always we talk about the history of war so here we can teach the history of peace not only war." Photo: Ohad Romano For three days the children revived the atmosphere of Tolerance, Serenity and Peace in the garden surrounding the museum's premises. The first two days were dedicated for preparations and training while the third day was reserved for the "Olympics." The children competed in various Greek style sport fields such as throwing stick, wrestling, running and throwing discus. But the real awards were not the medals. [Mother of Competitor, Bet She'an Valley, Israel]: "True sport, not too much interpersonal competition, good group spirit, encouragement, honesty, all sorts of things that have somewhat disappeared from sports." [Amin, Archaeological Museum]: "What was actually at that time the idea is to stop the fighting, stop the war and to give the people the opportunity to meet and maybe after this event they could solve the problems between each other." The Olympic Games goal was originally to bring nations closer together, to have the people of the world compete in sports, rather than fight in war. NTD, Bet She'an Valley, Israel

The ancient Olympics were played in the honour of God Zeus. The men had to be fit as they often had to go to war. Women were not allowed to participate or see the competitions. The Ancient Olympic Games were a series of athletic competitions held between the city-states of Ancient Greece. They used to be called the Olympic Games (Greek: Ολυμπιακοί Αγώνες; Olympiakoi Agones) until the modern day Olympic Games started. The Ancient Olympic Games began in 776 BCE in Olympia, Greece. They ran until 393 CE and then the stadium got buried due to landslides and other natural disasters.[1] Prizes at the games were olive wreaths, palm branches and woollen ribbons. https://www.pinterest.com/colin_carnage/

Ancient Olympic Games / History and Origin
 
05:00
The Olympic Games begun at Olympia in Greece in 776 BC. The Greek calendar was based on the Olympiad, the four-year period between games. The games were staged in the wooded valley of Olympia in Elis. Here the Greeks erected statues and built temples in a grove dedicated to Zeus, supreme among the gods. The greatest shrine was an ivory and gold statue of Zeus. Created by the sculptor Phidias, it was considered one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Scholars have speculated that the games in 776 BC were not the first games, but rather the first games held after they were organized into festivals held every four years as a result of a peace agreement between the city-states of Elis and Pisa. The Eleans traced the founding of the Olympic games to their King Iphitos, who was told by the Delphi Oracle to plant the olive tree from which the victors' wreaths were made. According to Hippias of Elis, who compiled a list of Olympic victors c.400 BC, at first the only Olympic event was a 200-yard dash, called a stadium. This was the only event until 724 BC, when a two-stadia race was added. Two years later the 24-stadia event began, and in 708 the pentathlon was added and wrestling became part of the games. This pentathlon, a five-event match consisted of running, wrestling, leaping, throwing the discus, and hurling the javelin. In time boxing, a chariot race, and other events were included. The victors of these early games were crowned with wreaths from a sacred olive tree that grew behind the temple of Zeus. According to tradition this tree was planted by Hercules (Heracles), founder of the games. The winners marched around the grove to the accompaniment of a flute while admirers chanted songs written by a prominent poet.

5/27/16: About 75 students from six Waldorf Schools brought ancient Greece to life at the Field House in Shelburne Friday for the Fifth Grade Pentathlon. Students became Olympians competing in javelin, discus throwing and the long jump - all while wearing togas. Hosted by the Lake Champlain Waldorf School, this event has been bringing together fifth graders from Vermont, New Hampshire and New York for almost 20 years. http://www.lakechamplainwaldorfschool.org/grade-school/pentathlon/ Music: Steady Betty, Linda Bassick, "Practicing" https://www.facebook.com/steadybettyvt/ This episode of Stuck in Vermont was made possible by Hotel Vermont and Vermont Tourism. http://bit.ly/hotelvermont http://bit.ly/vtvacation
