What is the similarity and differences between the ancient Olympic game and the modern ones?

The ancient Olympic Games were restricted to male Greek contestants only. The modern games are not restricted by nationality or gender and are, in fact, called the International Olympics. Also, while most of the original events (pentathlon, wrestling, boxing, running, etc.) have been revived, pankration, a brutal form of combat similar to modern mixed martial arts, was not. At the same time, many new sports have been added to the modern Olympics, including the decathlon (twice as many track and field events as the pentathlon), judo and a biathlon that combines skiing and riflry. Also, the marathon race, a staple of the modern Olympics, was not among the ancient events.
