Olympia (Greek: Ολυμπία Olympí'a or Ολύμπια Olýmpia, older transliterations, Olimpia, Olimbia), a sanctuary of ancient Greece in Elis, is known for having been the site of the Olympic Games in classical times, comparable in importance to the Pythian Games held in Delphi. Both games were held every Olympiad (i.e. every four years), the Olympic Games dating back possibly further than 776 BC. In 394 emperor Theodosius I abolished them because they were reminiscent of paganism.

Gold, Silver and Bronze: The Ancient Olympics

The ancient Greek Olympics were just as enmeshed in international politics, national rivalries and commercial pressures as their modern counterpart, says David Gribble.

Ancient Olympics: Let the Games Begin is a documentary taking a less orthodox view of the history of the games as they occurred in ancient Greece. We are taught about the glory of the games, but what is different in this video, is the viewer learns about the skulduggery and underhanded behavior of some of the competitors and organizers involved in the games. Corruption and cheating are elements that we usually don't associate with the glory of the Olympics, at least not during ancient times.
