In fact, the games were part of a religious festival in honour of the Greek god, Zeus. In course of time, the Olympic games became the most important festival in Greece. The first Olympic games held on 776 B.C. The games were held in an open place, about 200 meters long and 30 meters wide. This open place is called the stadium. It was in a valley and about 40,000 spectators watched the games from the slopes. At earlier time, contests included running and leaping, boxing and wrestling , and throwing the discuss and the Javelin. Later contests with horses were added.
