Stephen G. Miller, professor emeritus of classical archaeology at the University of California, Berkeley, speaks during an interview with the Associated Press in the ancient stadium of Nemea, southwest of Athens on Saturday, June 11, 2016.

The races, only include a 90 meter sprint on a straight dirt course at a 2,300-year-old stadium and a 7.5 kilometer run through fabled olive groves and vineyards, where in ancient Greek mythology Hercules, god of strength, sport and fertility, slayed a fearsome lion.
