Free men from all over the Greek world would participate. These were usually wealthier people, as the games took place during the Greek harvest, so peasants could rarely afford to compete.

The ancient Olympics began as entertainment for Ancient Greeks. When The Roman Empire captured Greece, they included the entire Roman Empire. Only men participated in The Olympics; however, women participated in local athletic events. Women just did not ride all over the countryside.

Only men that were allowed to compete but women weren't allowed so men had to compete naked in Ancient Olympic
