The Olympic games

                      The Olympic Games
The part of the Ancient Greece that i found interesting was the Olympic games.The Olympic games were thought to be apart of the religious festival.The Olympic games begun in over 2,700 years ago in Olympia. The games were held in honor of Zeus ,king of the gods.They were held every four years in Olympia.People from all over the Greek world would go to  watch and participate.The games would include,long jumping,boxing,running,throw a discus,and wrestling.For the award to the winners they would then receive a prize of palm branches and they are also given wool ribbons to  tie around their legs,arms or feet.So that is what i found interesting about the Ancient Greece.
