Which competition did Nero participate in the Olympic Games?

chariot racing
javelin throw
discus throw
wrestling
Nero enjoyed driving a one-horse chariot, singing to the lyre, and poetry. He was per­suad­ed to par­tic­i­pate in the Olympic Games of 67 in order to improve re­la­tions with Greece and display Roman dom­i­nance. As a com­peti­tor, Nero raced a ten-horse chariot and nearly died after being thrown from it. He also per­formed as an actor and a singer. Despite poor per­for­mances, he was chosen as a winner and paraded with olive wreath crowns when he returned to Rome.
