Sports training in Ancient Greece and its supposed modernity / Álvaro Morente Montero

Morente Montero, Álvaro

The present work aims to establish links between the knowledge we have on the precepts that drove the modes of sports training that took place in Ancient Greece, and the principles governing the achievement of sports performance today. From the result of this comparative analysis the authors can provide a more justified opinion about the reality of the level reached during this long historical period (the interval in which took place the development of the Ancient Olympic Games: 776 BC - 393 AD, that is, around a thousand years). For this they briefly review the origins and the stages by which sports training evolved in Ancient Greece, together with the most relevant aspects that shaped their training, which allow them to relate it to modernity.
