Afton welcomes its wrestling hero
Associated Press
AFTON, Wyo. Olympic gold medalist Rulon Gardner, once a portly kid ridiculed by childhood bullies as "fatso," was heralded as a hero in a homecoming that drew thousands from throughout the surrounding scenic mountain valley. Gardner, a hulking man as big as he is gentle, paraded Thursday through the downtown of this western Wyoming community where he grew up in celebration of his Olympic gold, which he won by pulling off one of the greatest upsets in Olympic history. Rulon Gardner was moved to tears upon his hero's welcome back home Thursday. "This medal is not mine," he said, holding the gold off his 54-inch chest. "This is all of our's." Gardner, who said he uses the childhood insults as motivation, won the Greco-Roman wrestling heavyweight gold last month at the Sydney Olympics by upsetting Russian Alexander Karelin, the Zeus of world wrestling. Karelin had not lost an international match in 13 years until Gardner's 1-0 victory. Gardner, who now lives in Colorado Springs, Colo., where the Olympic training facilities are, became an instant national and international celebrity.

The Greek athletic games, otherwise commonly recognized as the Panhellenic Games, were an integral part of Greek life. They combined religion, sport, and music into extravagant festivals involving peoples throughout Mediterranean. Not only did they attract thousands of participants and spectators to their venues, but they also promoted solidarity among the various Greek city-states. By the Classical period, their influence was felt throughout Greece. There were four main games: the Olympic Games, Pythian Games, Nemean Games, and Isthmian Games. The games at Olympia were the oldest and most famous of these. They all began quite humbly as religious ceremonies. While the games had a small religious aspect throughout their history, this role diminished as time progressed. Mythological evidence suggests that the athletic events originally served as entertainment for humans and gods and were loosely associated with sacrificial offerings. At first they were purely local events most likely spanning two or three days, consisting only of dancing, running, and wrestling. The centrepiece of every Olympics is the track and field stadium. Stadium Australia has built the largest Olympic arena in history with 110,000 spectators able to see the opening and closing ceremonies, track and field program and the final of the men's soccer tournament. Under an agreement brokered by the Olympic Co-ordination Authority, the majority of the cost of the $A615 million stadium is being borne by the private sector with the NSW public having ultimate ownership of the venue. Stadium Australia has already hosted several world-class events including top-flight rugby league and union, American NFL and the FIFA All Stars.

How the Olympic Games began
Nearly 3,000 years of Olympic history

The Olympics first started nearly 3,000 years ago in Ancient Greece. The ancient Greek civilization enjoyed many sports—including running, boxing and wrestling—because they believed physical activity and competition were very important. Every Greek boy was expected to participate in sports, because the Greeks believed the skills they learned in sports would make them better warriors.
In honour of Zeus
The ancient Greeks also believed religion was very important. Zeus was their greatest god. The ancient Greeks built a shrine to honour Zeus in the Valley of Olympia. Greeks gathered at the shrine to play their favourite sports as part of their religious ceremonies.
In 776 B.C. the ancient Greeks first recorded the results from their sporting events held in honour of Zeus. Every four years after that these Games were held, and because they took place in the Valley of Olympia, they became known as the Olympic Games.

@import url(/arts/wingedsandals/css/styles.css);
Some aspects of the modern Olympics come from the ancient Greek Olympics, but there are also a lot of differences between the ancient and modern Games. The ancient Olympics always took place at Olympia, in the south of Greece, every four years in August or September. According to tradition they were started in 776 B.C. and they continued until A.D. 393. They were held to honour the god Zeus, who had a large sanctuary next to the stadium where the competitions were held. The Olympics were very popular and important events. The Greeks even measured their years by reference to the Olympics! Thousands of people came from all over Greece to compete or watch. If there was a war, there was a truce around the time of the Olympics to allow all competitors to go. Most spectators slept in the open or in tents. There was no city at ancient Olympia, just the sanctuary, and sporting venues. The Ancient Olympics: Spectators and Events
