The HerAIA

The Heraia (The Her-ai-yah)

The Heraia was the first recorded women’s athletic competition held at Olympia back in the 6th century BC. Sixteen amazing women ran foot races in the honour of the goddess Hera. The winners were crowned with olive branches and legend says they were then blessed with strength from the goddess herself.
