The thrill of victory, the agony of defeat, and a lucrative post-competitive career as a celebrity or a politician. Plus a not-all-that-surprising hint of scandal.
Ah, things have changed, haven’t they? Or perhaps not.
Olympia, a sanctuary of ancient Greece about 40 minutes away from Katakalon, was the site of the original Olympic Games.
Competitions were held there every four years, from the 8th century BC to the 4th century AD.
Katakolon itself is a small town on a headland overlooking the Ionian Sea; today it is essentially the gateway for cruise ship passengers heading to Olympia.
