Winter learning journey Day 2 Activity 2.

 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.

My three facts:
1. Milo won the wrestling championship and in other Greek games he won 32 wrestling competitions.

2. Milo also carried a ox/bull on his shoulders through the stadium in Olympia.

3. Milo saved a philosopher's life when a roof was about to fall on him.
