Talk about the fact that Greek male athletes competed nude versus today (imagine how that would play out with modern television, lol). Greek Males performing nude was acceptable in this culture because not only would they perform and win but they would win accolades for their achievements(The Physically fit men of course). Today the way the world is and this generation men would not be able to compete nude. Although I believe a lot of women would like this thought (lol) they way society is shaped now having clothing is pretty much a necessity. You have a lot of males who would not want to compete nude.
· Discuss the sheer scope of the modern games with so many nations versus the smaller number of Greek cities. Like today the Greek games were done every 4 years and had a lot of similar contest. One huge different were that women would not usually attend these games.
· Are the Olympics today more about ‘the athletes’ or the ‘nations’? I believe Olympics today is about competetion but more about bringing the nations together as one. It still has the competitive spirit on being the best but more so on all the nations coming together in unity.
