Ancient vs Modern Olympics

Ancient vs Modern Olympics

The Ancient Olympics was first played in 776 BC and last played on 393 AD. It took 1503 years for the Olympics to come back. In 1896 the Olympics returned and was held at Athens Greece.


In the Ancient Olympics there were only 7 sports and they are running, long jump, shot put, javelin, boxing, pankration and equestrian. The Modern Olympics have usually 22-28 sports. That is 15-21 more sports than the Ancient Olympics. Did you know that one of the 7 sports in the Ancient Olympics was a mix of boxing and wrestling and it was the sport pankration.


Olympia, Greece was the place that the athletes in the Ancient Olympics played in. Now in the Modern Olympics the games can be held anywhere in the world. The Ancient Olympics was only held in Greece because it was dedicated to the Greek God Zeus. The Modern Olympics is not dedicated to Zeus or anyone and that's why it can be played anywhere in the world.

There was only 1 country in the Ancient Olympics and it was the hosting country Greece. The teams were the cities in Greece. This Olympics 206 countries were able to join. Not only the countries go to the Modern Olympics but even refugees can join. The refugees have their own team.


Clothing was not worn in the Ancient Olympics, they were nude. But now in the Modern Olympics they wear clothes and the women can join the Olympics. The men in the Ancient Olympics were nude so they could show their pride and their strength. Girls were not allowed to join the Ancient Olympics.


The Ancient Olympics and the Modern Olympics are really different and in that 1503 years the Olympics had a big change.







We have been learning about the Olympics so our class wrote a report about the ancient and modern Olympics.

Today when Mr  Hopkins came in we made a padlet. After we made a padlet we read some awesome blog comments. Then we watched 2 fantastic video clips about what a comment should have. After we went back to the padlet and edited it. Then we wanted to share so we put the padlet on our blogs. Now I learned what a good comment has to be.
