Greek Sports

Although a significant aspect of ancient Greek culture, and long recognized as one of Greece's most enduring gifts to the modern world, Greek sports have only received the focused attention of scholars and university teachers in the last twenty-five years or so. While we no longer ascribe to the Greeks the invention of athleticism and the competitive spirit, there is no doubt about the central importance of sport in Greek thought and culture. No aspect of ancient Greek life was untouched by athletic ideology and terminology: religion, politics, literature, philosophy, or art.
