DescriptionTrain to be an Olympic athlete at the neoclassical Zappeion, located just below the National Gardens of Athens, and the first building to be erected specifically for the revival of the Olympic Games in the modern world. Find out in detail what role the ancient Olympics played in society over the millennium in which they were held. Learn how the athletes trained and what disciplines were included as the games evolved. Hear some really old sports trivia to stump your friends, and investigate how the modern games were first proposed, organized and held in Athens more than 1,500 years after they were last staged. Then, stretch your muscles at a nearby historic gym. Try some classic techniques from old events, such as the discus and javelin throw, and practice newer ones like the shot put, long jump and relay race. By the time you reach the Panathenaic Stadium (the only stadium in the world made entirely of marble), you’ll be psyched up for a truly unique experience. Race in the stadium on the hallowed track where the first modern Olympians competed more than a century ago. Don’t worry about personal bests; it’s the run that counts, not the finish line!
