Chariot Racing

    Ancient Greek chariot racing was a very popular  sport . It was popular but dangerous to the horse and the driver. When you played chariot racing you had to have lots of strength. Sadly this dangerous and well known sport from many years ago is not in modern Olympics any more.

     As you may not no more than twenty thousand men went to watch the competitors of the chariot racing  compete in a hippodrome. A hippodrome is a l arena were the driver and his horse  would compete .Chariot racing is a very, very dangerous sport, which is probably why we don't have it in our Olympics now.
