Men were allowed to enter the Olympics but, young boys were also allowed, this was not determined by age but if the boy was bearded or not so their was no cheating.

Women were also allowed in the case that they owned a horse that was being used; as long as it was a man. Other than that it was strictly boys and men.

There were no ancient Roman Olympics, there were the Gladiatorial sports and funeral games but no Olympics. The ancient Greeks held the Olympics which was called the Olympiad. Next time please check your facts before you spout random nonsense.
