Day 1 - Activity 2

Monday 11th July
Activity 2 -  Day 1

Day 1 Activity 2 -  In the ancient Olympic Games the winner of each event was called the Olympionic. Instead of a gold medal, the winner had a palm leaf placed in their hands and a crown placed on their head to show that they were the winner. Arguably one of the most famous Olympionics was a man named ‘Milo of Kroton’ (see picture below). Use Google to research ‘Milo of Kroton’ and post three interesting facts about him on your blog.

I did my research on Milo Of Kroton and these were the three interesting facts that I found about him: Milo of Kroton was a 6th century BC Greek Wrestler and he was also the leader of the people of Croton to a military victory over the neighboring city of Sybaris in 510 BC. Thirdly, Milo of Krotons occupation was being a well known wrestler.


  1. Great job with your research, Caroline. You found three really interesting facts about Milo of Kroton. He was certainly a very famous man and a very talented athlete!

    I read that he used to carry a calf on his shoulders every day as part of his training regime and was so strong that he also saved the life of a philosopher by holding up the roof of a house with his bare hands. That is pretty incredible, isn't it?!

    I hope that you will continue to blog with us this holiday. You are learning and sharing such interesting information. Keep it up!!
