Couple of articles - Enjoy!


  1. Possible ways you could take your research:
    the mythological origins of the Olympics
    the representation of the Olympics in film (Leni Riefenstahl, Kon Ichikawa)
    political context/dimension of the Olympics
    a critique of Olympics/the spectacle of sport - is it, like Marx said of religion, an 'opium of the people'?

    I'm sure there are many other possible ways to look at the subject as well as these.

  2. The mythological origins of the olympics is something that I would be very interested in researching on.
