Abstract: The 4 major “corona games” most prominent in ancient Greece are Olympic Games, Pitia Games, Nimiya Games, Kolinsdexia Games. It is fair to say that these games are not only religious rituals for Grecians to worship to gods, but also their own grand holidays. The 4 competitive games are all mainly for religious rituals, but gods worshipped are different. What the winners of the games pursued were just honorable titles, and what they got were plant coronas made of different plants. What the games conveyed was a signal of peace, i.e. to worship the same god in order to achieve a sort of assimilation and fusion, but the games’ primary subjects of fusion are differ-ent. As for using sports to go against and replace armed conflicts and using peaceful means to achieve strategic goals, the games have different focuses in terms of competition contents. Although the origins and contents of the 4 major competitive games in ancient Greece are related to their religious believes, god worshipping and cultural cus-toms in many ways, essentially they are unreligious competitive games.
