Boxing


Activity 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.

Pentathlon – an event where athletes had to compete in five separate activities – running, long jump, discus, javelin and wrestling. Javelin is a sport where an athlete throws a long sword-like spear as far as they can. Discus is similar to javelin but, instead of throwing a spear, the athlete throws a flat disc.

My reason why I chose this: The reason why I chose this sport is because, I enjoy doing boxing, it's challenging and you also learn new skills.

  1. Hi Stanley,

    Welcome to the Winter Learning Journey! I am so happy to see that you have joined us this holiday and have already posted three blogs. Wow -great job!

    I also really like that you have chosen pentathlon for your sport. It is great to challenge yourself and to learn new skills. The pentathlon will really push you to learn a number of new skills given that there are five separate events included in it. I think that the javelin and discus would have been the most difficult events for me. What about you? I read that you like boxing so I would imagine that you will also like wrestling but what about the others? Are you good at running or long jump?

    I hope that you continue to post such great blogs this holiday. I'm just heading off to read your next one!

    Cheers, Rachel :)
