Fact 2: Milo of Kroton was born in Krotone and died in Krotone.
Fact 3: He won the boys' wrestling and thereafter won five men's wrestling titles between 536 and 520 BCE.

  1. Hi Stanley,

    Great picture! I think that you have discovered some really interesting information about Milo of Kroton. He was a very strong and capable fighter back in the day. Did you know that he used to carry a calf around on his shoulders as part of his training regime? I don't think that I could have done it. Could you?

    Keep up the great work with your blogging :)
