The Olympic Games were not Roman. They were Greek and were held at Olympia, a sanctuary for Greek deities in southern Greece. They were pan-Greek games; that is, competitions among athletes who were representatives of the city-states of Greece. It is not clear why these games started as its origins are given through mythology. They functioned as a gathering of Greeks from the city-states of Greece. They were sporting competitions because the Greeks loved sports.
