Since its inception to its development, athletics has had a notable presence and significant participation in both the ancient and modern Olympic Games. The first Olympic Games were held in the Greek city of Olympia, close to Mount Olympius, the center of the Greek people's religious life, and because of this city's high status, the first Olympic Games began in 776 BC. Every four years, the Olympic Games were held. Comparing the performance of Arab athletes in athletics at the Olympic Games, Madam, 2000 and the Athens Olympics, 2004, demonstrates the significance of the research. Due to its applicability to the nature of the issue to be researched on a sample of Arab Olympians from Sydney in 2000 and Athens in 2004, the historical method is thought to be the researcher's best strategy.
