Milo of Croton The Ancient Greeks invented progressive strength training. Milo of Croton won six Olympiads in the wrestling events. He also won multiple times at the Pythian Games, Isthmian Games, and Nemean Games. Milo loved to show off his strength and dexterity. According to sources, his favorite trick was to hold a pomegranate and have people try to take it from him. No one was strong enough to take the pomegranate from him and he also managed to not damage the fruit. How did he gain such prodigious strength and skill? According to popular legend, Milo noticed a newborn calf near his home. He decided to lift the animal and carry it on his shoulders. He returned the next day and did it again. He did it every day until the calf grew to a four-year-old bull. Thus was progressive strength training born. Here’s another wild athlete story. Theagenes of Thasos was a formidable fighter who won over 1,300 bouts over his two decade career. He even won a crown for long-distance running in the city of Argos. As a boxer, he was never defeated. According to legend, years after his, a vandal tried to deface a statue honoring Theagenes. The bronze statue broke in half and crushed the would-be criminal. 9. Birth Control by Sneezing The Ancient Greeks had various forms of birth control. Some forms involved certain herbs and plants, which worked very well. However, one physician, Soranus, advised women to do something a little odd. After intercourse, women were told to squat and sneeze to avoid becoming pregnant. He also suggested jumping up and down to dislodge the sperm. If that’s not crazy enough for you, the website Snopes.com was still debunking the “jump up and down” method of birth control as recently as 2007. 8. Brazen Bull In the 6th century BC, a brass worker named Perilaus of Athens created a large, hollow bull made of brass and gave it to a ruler named Phalaris. A door on the side of the bull allowed a man to climb into the sculpture. Once the door was closed, a fire could be lit from underneath and slowly roast the person. But it doesn’t end there. In the head of the bull was a series of stops and pipes that transformed the screams of the person into “the tenderest, most pathetic, most melodious of bellowings”. Phalaris was far from impressed. So disgusted by the piece, he asked Perilaus to climb into the bull and demonstrate the capabilities of the pipes. Once inside, Phalaris shut the door and ordered a fire lit beneath the bull. He reportedly said, “Receive the due reward of your wondrous art; let the music-maker be the first to play.” Before Perilaus, they removed him from the bull and threw him off a cliff. Despite Phalaris’s disgust, the brazen bull became the most common form of in Ancient Greece. Here’s an extra fact. Phalaris was a tyrant ruling in Acragas in Sicily from 570 BC to 554. He’s known for several building projects but he did have a cruel streak that made him the proverbial “evil tyrant”. According to legend, after he was overthrown by a general, the new ruler ordered Phalaris to roast inside the brazen bull. 7. Victorious Corpse Did you know? Cheating was a huge problem in Ancient Greek sport, just like today. Most of the time, it was the usual bribery or foul moves during games. Here is a picture of a scene on a kylix depicting two pankratists fighting. One of them is trying to gouge out the eye of his opponent while simultaneously biting. The umpire is preparing to strike the fighter for the foul. Some fighters would find an easier way and try to curse or hex their opponents using “curse tablets” to make them lose. An event held during the Olympic Games was the pankration, which was a mixed martial arts style that blended boxing and wrestling. Most famous of the pankratists was Arrhachion. During the 54th Olympiad in 564 BC, Arrhachion entered the pankration to defend his championship. However, his opponent got the better of him and put Arrachion into a chokehold. It is said Arrhachion’s trainer shouted, “What a fine funeral if you do not submit at Olympia”. Arrhachion responded by twisting and kicking his opponent’s foot and dislocating it. The pain forced his opponent to surrender. Unfortunately, the move broke Arrhachion’s neck. Despite that, the judges named Arrhachion the victor. he successfully defended his title. His fame spread as people held him up as the athletic ideal. Geographer Pausanias mentioned a statue immortalizing Arrhachion during his description of Phigalia

Ancient Olympic Games / History and Origin
 
05:00
The Olympic Games begun at Olympia in Greece in 776 BC. The Greek calendar was based on the Olympiad, the four-year period between games. The games were staged in the wooded valley of Olympia in Elis. Here the Greeks erected statues and built temples in a grove dedicated to Zeus, supreme among the gods. The greatest shrine was an ivory and gold statue of Zeus. Created by the sculptor Phidias, it was considered one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Scholars have speculated that the games in 776 BC were not the first games, but rather the first games held after they were organized into festivals held every four years as a result of a peace agreement between the city-states of Elis and Pisa. The Eleans traced the founding of the Olympic games to their King Iphitos, who was told by the Delphi Oracle to plant the olive tree from which the victors' wreaths were made. According to Hippias of Elis, who compiled a list of Olympic victors c.400 BC, at first the only Olympic event was a 200-yard dash, called a stadium. This was the only event until 724 BC, when a two-stadia race was added. Two years later the 24-stadia event began, and in 708 the pentathlon was added and wrestling became part of the games. This pentathlon, a five-event match consisted of running, wrestling, leaping, throwing the discus, and hurling the javelin. In time boxing, a chariot race, and other events were included. The victors of these early games were crowned with wreaths from a sacred olive tree that grew behind the temple of Zeus. According to tradition this tree was planted by Hercules (Heracles), founder of the games. The winners marched around the grove to the accompaniment of a flute while admirers chanted songs written by a prominent poet.

Top Popular Games of Ancient Greece Games in ancient Greece were considered no less than a religious festival. The Greek Olympics are believed to have begun in 776 BC which inspired the beginning of modern Olympic Games in 1896. These Games were a way of paying tribute to the king of gods, Zeus, and were staged every four years in a valley near the city of Elis called Olympia. The inbuilt warrior skills in Greeks lead to the birth of games such as boxing, chariot racing, running, wrestling and much more. https://youtu.be/gUDYWDbm42g subscribe for more video : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzLbdV1VO5X62AmQqnIthAQ

Ancient Olympia in Greece, Home of the Original Olympic Games
 
02:17
Olympia is a town and UNESCO World Heritage Site in Peloponnese, Greece. This was the site of the original Olympic Games from 776 BC. The Olympic Games were held every four years throughout Classical Antiquity, from the 8th century BC to the 4th century AD. The first Olympic Games were in honor of Zeus. The flame for each modern Olympic Games is still lit in the town, by a reflection of sunlight in a parabolic mirror, and carried by torch to the place where the games are to be held. The sanctuary, known as the Altis, consists of an unordered arrangement of various buildings. Enclosed within the temenos (sacred enclosure) are the Temple of Hera and Temple of Zeus, the Pelopion and the area of the altar, where the sacrifices were made. The hippodrome and later stadium were also to the east. To the north of the sanctuary can be found the Prytaneion and the Philippeion, as well as the array of treasuries representing the various city states. The Metroon lies to the south of these treasuries, with the Echo Stoa to the East. Olympia is also known for the gigantic ivory and gold statue of Zeus that used to stand there, sculpted by Pheidias, which was named one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Very close to the Temple of Zeus which housed this statue, the studio of Pheidias was excavated in the 1950s. Evidence found there, such as sculptor's tools, corroborates this opinion. The ancient ruins sit north of the Alfeios River and Mount Kronos. The Kladeos, a tributary of the Alfeios, flows around the area. Its located in the part of Greece which is called Peloponesse. In Ancient Greece, Olympia was sacred ground to the Greeks. QUESTIONS? We would like to hear from you!

AMAZING History of the Ancient Greeks!
 
11:16
AMAZING History of the Ancient Greeks! From crazy pets to the incredible philosophers…stay tuned to Number 1 to find out what ancient Greece is still known for to this day! Brought to you by Zero2Hero!! Don't forget to subscribe here! https://goo.gl/NXuChu Click here to find out AMAZING Facts About the Human Body!! https://youtu.be/btDMBvDcF4w Number 10: Warring Hellenes Most people don’t know that the Ancient Greeks preferred to be known as 'Hellenes,’ and they lived in 'Hellas.' These 'Hellenes' were never actually one people, or country, as you and I would know it today. Ancient Greece was actually divided up into small 'city-states,' each ruled by a king-like figure. Some of the better-known city-states are Athens, Sparta, Corinth and Olympia. Each city-state had its own government structure, laws and army. And, wouldn't you just know it? They didn't always get on very well with each other. It wasn't until as recent as the 300s BC that Alexander the Great ruled the whole of Greece under one flag. I know, the 300s BC doesn't seem that recent…but this is Ancient history we're talking about, so it’s relative. Athens and Sparta, for example, were once at war for nearly 30 years! The Peloponnesian War lasted from 431 to 404BC, and there was only one group that the Spartans hated more than the Athenians, and you know who that was, right? The Persians. Number 9: This is Sparta! The Spartans were all about war and self-inflicted hardship. At seven years old boys would leave their families to get an education: an education in pain and battle. It was only when they turned 30 that the boys, those who'd made it through to the end, could become soldiers and be considered true citizens of Sparta. The boys were only given one tunic and weren't allowed shoes. They slept most nights in the open, and were deliberately not given enough food so they would learn how to forage and steal. They were encouraged to fight each other and did physical and battle training every day. It wasn't just the boys, though, as the girls were tough as nails too. They were given athletic training and taught how to throw discus and javelins. The women of Sparta couldn't be soldiers, but they did compete against the boys at sport. And, apparently they won a lot of the time too. So after years of getting their food stolen, walking barefoot and fighting wild animals…what was a Spartan soldier's reward? The glory of battle and a loving mother who would see you off by saying: "Come back with your shield, or on it." Meaning that she'd rather you died and were carried back by your fellow warriors than drop your shield and run away like a coward. Actually, that kind of reminds me of my mom... Number 8: The Olympic Games. But it wasn't all war and struggle in ancient Greece, honestly. In 776 BC, the first Olympic Games took place as part of a religious festival to honor almighty Zeus, king of the Gods. The Games were held, like the modern ones, every four years in the summer. They were popular, as well, with between 20,000 and 40,000 people attending at the height of the games. The games were so popular that all of the city-states - even Sparta! - stopped fighting for a whole month before the games so that the athletes could have time to train and, you know, not get killed. Whatever brings the people together, I guess! The Olympic Games were male-only, and included foot races, horse races, chariot races, boxing, wrestling, the long jump, disc throwing and spear throwing as events. As a prize, the winner was given a wreath of olive leaves plucked from a sacred tree next to the temple dedicated to Zeus. Sounds, kind of lame, right? Although…they would also get a statue made of them, and KUDOS from their home town, lots and lots of kudos. Number 7: What’s in a Word? Speaking of kudos, that's actually a word we got from the Ancient Greeks. A lot of our English language words originated in Greek and many are from their gods and legends. For example, Atlas was a giant who was punished by having to carry the world on his shoulders, and now it's our name for a book of maps of the world. Chronos was the god of time and chronology means to put events in order of time. Okeanos, who was the god of the mystical river Oceanus, which provided the Earth with all of its fresh water. Clotho was the youngest of the Three Fates who spun the thread of life, think about that next time you go clothes shopping. Strangely, the word 'tragedy' comes from the Greek word for the song of the male goat. Did anyone else know that Billy Goats sang? That's news to me! Maybe it sounds terrible though, worse than that time your Aunt had a bit too much egg nog at Christmas and decided to have a one-person karaoke party, why else would it become the word for tragedy? Speaking of tragedy, the Greeks used to perform a ritual where a circle of people would dance around a goat before sacrificing him…probably when his singing was the worst!

Olympic Games : A Taste of the Ancient Greek Spirit
 
02:00
And now let's move to news from Israel. About one hundred children have tasted the spirit of the ancient Greek Olympic-style games in a Children's peace festival, held in Israel. Let's have a look. For more news and videos visit ☛ http://ntd.tv Follow us on Twitter ☛ http://twitter.com/NTDTelevision Add us on Facebook ☛ http://on.fb.me/s5KV2C The Archaeological Museum in Bet She'an Valley called "Footsteps in the Valley" has devoted one of the galleries entirely to the ancient Greek art. The museum has accommodated fifth grade children from various schools in Israel. The main purpose of this event was to learn the history of the ancient Greek empire... and especially about the ancient Olympic spirit based on the principles of peace, tolerance and human dignity. [Dror Segel, Manager, Archaeological Museum]: "We can see also in the pictures here that Olympic games all of in the world can be for peace and for tolerance and always we talk about the history of war so here we can teach the history of peace not only war." Photo: Ohad Romano For three days the children revived the atmosphere of Tolerance, Serenity and Peace in the garden surrounding the museum's premises. The first two days were dedicated for preparations and training while the third day was reserved for the "Olympics." The children competed in various Greek style sport fields such as throwing stick, wrestling, running and throwing discus. But the real awards were not the medals. [Mother of Competitor, Bet She'an Valley, Israel]: "True sport, not too much interpersonal competition, good group spirit, encouragement, honesty, all sorts of things that have somewhat disappeared from sports." [Amin, Archaeological Museum]: "What was actually at that time the idea is to stop the fighting, stop the war and to give the people the opportunity to meet and maybe after this event they could solve the problems between each other." The Olympic Games goal was originally to bring nations closer together, to have the people of the world compete in sports, rather than fight in war. NTD, Bet She'an Valley, Israel
