Athlos - participating in athletics - initially defined these significant deeds: the pursuit of perfection through creative activities that involve physical endurance and skill, as well as virtue, energy, beauty, and health. An insightful and thorough examination of the basis upon which the Greek ideals of athleticism and sportsmanship were formed.
