Fact of the Day  

 

More Information  

There were different types of athletes in ancient Greece. Some played sports and others were athletes of war [source]. Both types performed in the nude. The source also states that when attempts were made to clothe the sportsmen, the offers were either refused or just fizzled out shortly. The word gymnastics comes out of this whole naked issue. The Greek word gymnos means naked. A gymnasium was a combination locker-room and training facility with, let's just say, no dress code [source].
Some Celts (Eastern Europe) also fought in the nude as the practice was not uncommon at the time. Once extremely sophisticated and protected armies came around (i.e. Rome), naked warriors such as these didn't stand a chance.
