Are the olympics considered amateur sports competitions
The ancient athlete: amateur or professional? Athletic training was a basic part of every Greek boy's education, and any boy who excelled in sport might set his sights on competing in the Olympics. The Olympic competition included preliminary matches or heats to select the best athletes for the final competition. Ancient writers tell the stories of athletes who worked at other jobs and did not spend all their time in training. For example, one of Alexander the Great's couriers, Philonides, who was from Chersonesus in Crete, once won the pentathlon, which included discus, javelin, long jump, and wrestling competitions as well as running. However, just as in the modern Olympics, an ancient athlete needed mental dedication, top conditioning, and outstanding athletic ability in order to make the cut.

Can Professional Athletes Compete in the Olympics?
ET hour. CNN -- For all the cheers, roars and ovations in all the Olympic stadiums and arenas over all the years, perhaps the most significant Olympic sound heard in the last quarter-century was a yawn. Because a yawn, symbolically, was how the public greeted what might have been the most controversial change in rules that the International Olympic Committee ever instituted. The one firm rule that always governed the Olympic Games was that amateur athletes were permitted to compete. Professional athletes were not.
Inspired by the ancient Olympics in Greece, the modern games began in and were long known as a bastion for amateurism with professionals being unable to compete in the games. However, during the latter half of the 20th century, the IOC International Olympic Committee has had to adapt to a number of political and economic advancements and one of these was the growing issue of corporate endorsements and sponsorship which blurred the lines of amateurism and professionalism resulting in the rules being steadily relaxed for almost all sports in the Olympic movement, allowing professionals to compete in all sports, except boxing and wrestling. Pierre de Coubertin was the founder of the International Olympic Committee and was the driving force behind the first of the modern Olympic Games.
