When the Olympics first started only man was allowed while the woman had to stay behind and look after there home. I don't think that was fair because girls could have been stronger than the men but didn't get a chance to show it. But in know days man and woman are allowed to compete in any event.
If I was alive 2792 years ago one of the sports I would have liked to play would have been Running because It seems like the most non-death defying. There were three running events in the Ancient Olympics The stade, a sprinting race. The athletes ran from one side of the stadium to the other. The diaulos, a middle distance race. The athletes ran two lengths of the stadium. The dolichos – an endurance race. The athletes ran approximately 20 lengths of the stadium.
There was a famous man named Milo of Croton. He was a famous wrestler and loved a good wrestle. Did you know the date of Milo's death is unknown, but he reportedly was attempting to tear a tree apart when his hands became trapped in a crevice in its trunk, and a pack of wolves surprised and devoured him. Another fact is that Milo had a calf and every day he carried the calf but when it grew old he ate it. Last fact about Milo is that he wore the victory crown no more than six times.
