Only men were allowed to compete in the Ancient Olympics in Greece - girls and unmarried women could attend, but not married women

However one married woman - Callipateira - wanted to go to the Olympic Games so she could help her son to become an Olympic champion, and so she put on a false beard!

This is the story of her adventures at the Ancient Olympics. On the way we discover the traditions of the games, such as the Olympic Torch and the Olympic Truce
