Winter Learning Journey Day 1: 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.

These are the three facts I Found on Google about Milo of Kroton:
  1. While he was splitting a tree with his hand and then his hand got stuck. A pack of wolves came and ate him.
  2. Milo was the most famous Olympionic.
  3. Milo was from Italy.

  1. Great facts, Joseph! I love that you took the time to research Milo of Kroton and find out such interesting information about him. He certainly was an amazing athlete and a very strong man. It's so sad that he died when he got his hand stuck in the tree and was discovered (and later devoured) by wolves - ouch!

    I'm really enjoying your blog posts. Please keep up the great work!!
