Milo Of Croton - Winter Learning Journey

Milo Of Croton

  • Milo of Croton was a 6th-century BC wrestler from the Magna Graecian city of Croton, who enjoyed a brilliant wrestling career and won many victories in the most important athletic festivals of ancient Greece.

  • Milo was a six-time Olympic victor. He won the boys' wrestling (probably in 540 BC), and thereafter five men's wrestling titles between 536 and 520 BCE. He also won seven crowns at the Pythian Games at Delphi (one as a boy).

  • 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.

In this blog activity, I have list three facts about "Milo of Croton. This was very hard to find but everything about him was on wikipedia..... "Phew." This was very interesting to find facts about him and how he was the 6th century BC wrestler.
