In Ancient Greece, only Greek athletes participated. It would usually be against other athletes not countries. The highest honor was the olive branch crown.

the differences is that in the modern Olympics you get a medal and that the Olympics are televised and there are more sports while in the ancient Olympics when you win you would get a crown and the only sports that were there were discus,foot racing,gladiators and it was only held in Greece.

Silver Charm won the first two triple crown races (the Derby and the Preakness). Touch Gold won the Belmont...so no triple crown winner in 1997.

First no one is nude. All were nude in the first Olympic Games. Next, it was only Greece and not the world. Third, it was only track games, and the award was laurel leaves crown not the the medals given today.
