The athletes of the ancient world assemble in Athens for the Olympic Games. Asterix and the Gauls enter too, but they're due for a setback. As an artificial stimulant, magic potion is banned.

Can our friends win at the Games without it? And what's the special ingredient of the other potion, the one in the cauldron in the shed with the door that doesn't close properly?

What the druids have to say about Asterix at the Olympic Games

This excellent album has a brilliant new idea: Asterix can win the contests without the magic potion! The shrewd little Gaul is never at a loss.

Since the beginning (or almost), Asterix albums with their picaresque Romans and unknown lands have presented us with lots of trips full of surprises. But this time the adventure changes, in so far as the whole village goes off to win medals in Greece. This means that hitherto secondary characters such as Geriatrix, who is completely wild here, are developed.

After having seen the beginnings of rugby in Asterix in Britain, here we discover, with the help of hilarious evidence, that highly unrecommendable sporting practices already existed in 52 BC.
