The historic Olympic athletes would enter the stadium by walking under this archway. On the third day of the games, 100 oxen had been sacrificed and burnt on the Altar of Zeus. Inside stood an enormous gold and ivory statue of the king of the gods himself. Athletes competed for the glory of their city and winners were seen as being touched by the gods. By sharing our athletes’ tales, we encourage all Canadians through the facility of sport. Follow the journey on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and YouTube.
