Weekly Activity - Activity 1 ( Day 1 )


Learn - 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.

This is a challenge that is similar to the boxing matches that we see today however, instead of boxing gloves, the athletes had long strips of leather wrapped around their hands. The reason why I chose this subject is because I know that I can learn some new facts about this challenge that happened how many years ago and also I chose it because I know I can do this challenge but it is really difficult to learn. Thanks and have a great school holiday.


  1. Hi Joshua,

    Wow, you have gone above and beyond by posting two different blogs related to the same activity! I really enjoyed reading your description of boxing and am impressed that you have chosen it. Boxing is definitely a tough sport but, as you mentioned in your post, it is a challenge that could ultimately be really rewarding. I like to challenge myself and I expect that you do, too.

    Keep up the great work and keep challenging yourself over the holidays to do your best with the blogging programme. You are well on track to being a top blogger for St Pius X.

    Well done!

    Cheers, Rachel
