The Olympic Games were celebrated with a grand opening ceremony featuring the Parade of Nations, lighting of the Olympic torch, and various cultural performances. Athletes from all participating countries competed in their respective events, striving for excellence and athletic achievements. The games were also marked by a spirit of sportsmanship and camaraderie among the athletes and a celebration of international unity and mutual respect.
The ancient Olympic Games were first created in 776 BCE in Olympia, Greece.
The ancient Olympians did not add more games to the Olympics. The Olympic Games in ancient Greece only consisted of a few events, including foot races, wrestling, and chariot racing. The modern Olympic Games, which include a wide range of sports, were introduced in the late 19th century.

This even was an all male affair as any woman found observing the games was subject to execution.
The English transliteration of the Greek term for "honor" is "time" (as in tau + iota + mu + epsilon; note that this is the singular form). The phonetic pronunciation of this term is as follows: "tih-may", with the accent upon the second syllable.
A marathon is 26.2 miles (42.195 kilometers).
The Olympic victor received his first awards immediately after the competition. Following the announcement of the winner's name by the herald, a Hellanodikis (Greek judge) would place a palm branch in his hands, while the spectators cheered and threw flowers to him. Red ribbons were tied on his head and hands as a mark of victory. The official award ceremony would take place on the last day of the Games, at the elevated vestibule of the temple of Zeus. In a loud voice, the herald would announce the name of the Olympic winner, his father's name, and his homeland. Then, the Hellanodikis placed the sacred olive tree wreath, or kotinos, on the winner's head.

As they didn't want to offend their gods and because the Olympics was also a mainly religious feat woman weren't even allowed to veiw the games.

It was a Greek festival, not Roman.
The original Olympics (like some other Greek games) were a religious observance in which the participants made an offering to Zeus of a military virtue called agon. Women weren't warriors, so they didn't have agon.
