Day 1: Once Upon a Time in Olympia

Activity Day 1: Let’s imagine that you were alive 2792 years ago and invited to compete in the first ever ancient Olympic Games. Which of these events: running, wrestling, boxing, pankration, horse racing and pentathlon would you compete in? Click on the name of the sport and it will take you to a site that tells you about the sport. On your blog tell us which sport you would choose and why you chose it.

Answer: If I competed in the Olympic Games, 2792 years ago, I would have competed in the event of Running. I would participate in the middle distance because, it's in between short distance and long distance. 


  1. Hi Rosrine,

    Welcome to the Winter Learning Journey programme! I am so happy that you have chosen to join the journey and blog with us this holiday.

    I am also happy to see that you have chosen running as your sport. I would have made exactly the same choice! I actually quite like running although I'm not very fast so I wouldn't have been able to compete in the sprinting races. I think that I would have been a middle distance runner and competed in the diaulos event, just like you!

    I hope that you continue to blog with us over the holiday. I'm really looking forward to reading your posts!

    Cheers, Rachel
