ATLANTA, GEORGIA - JUNE 1996: Record-holding super-heavyweight weightlifter, Mark Henry, in June of 1996 grips the bar of his bench at a training facility in Atlanta, GA. The olympians of ancient greece trained not only to compete but to attain physical abilities that rivaled those of the common man--with the feats achieved during the present day olympics its fair to say little has changed. These athletes train their bodies to machine-like capabilities in order to beat the competition by sometimes only a hundredth of a second. Some have done it with severe heat stroke or even a broken leg.
