Ancient Chariot Races

I got this image from library.thinkquest.org
Chariot racing became one of the important events when it was added to the Olympic games in 680 B.C. It also became one of the most popular games for the Greeks and the Romans. 

In these chariot races you could get seriously injured, because other competitors would try and knock you off your horse or even worse!

Other little facts:
Chariot races were held in buildings called Hippodromes. They are like arena's.

If a horse became useless to them they would put it down.
