Fun Fact: Do you know what happened if the ancient Olympians cheated (which they did--bribery, a form of doping, and blood enhancing)? Their names were engraved on the pedestals of Zeus statues that lined the path to the stadium. As the honest athletes entered they would spit on the cheaters names!
Do you know what I like about the picture I posted from the Temple of Zeus at Olympia? Well, those pillars are lying on the ground pretty well just as they fell when an earthquake struck in 551 AD. There is something so real about that.
You are Always in My Prayers. Love Mom.
