    9. 9. Sample with core data The ancient Greeks thought about sports in a different way than we do today. Their most famous sporting event, the Olympic Games, began in 776 BC as a single running race in the context of a ceremony dedicated to the god Zeus. By 472 BC it had become a five-day event, with many similar events to our Olympics including running and wrestling. Yet the presence of the priestess of Demeter, and sacrifices to Zeus at the beginning and end of the Games, marked the event as a religious festival. Rule-breakers were punished harshly, for offending the gods. Even wars ceased when the Olympic truce began in Greece. The Peloponnesian War paused six times for the athletes to compete before the gods.
