One famous charioteer was the Roman Emperor Nero, who in 67 A.D. competed in the chariot race at Olympia. It was hardly a fair contest. Nero entered the four-horse race with a team of ten horses. He was thrown from his chariot and was unable to complete the race, but he was proclaimed the champion on the grounds that he would have won had he finished the race. –Olympic Games We No Longer Play by Nick Romeo
