The cheaters would be fined heavily and the money received from those fines would be used to create statues of gods and champion athletes that were placed at the stadium where the Olympics were held.

The traditional Jewish penalty for a cheating wife was death during the more patriarchal days. Divorce is now a common way of handling adultery instead.

In ancient Greece, if you were caught cheating, you had to pay fines and with that money, statues of Zeus were build with the funds. Today people would be disqualified, have to pay, and would have shame following them for the rest of their life, even face jail time depending on the charge.
