Date of birth/death
He was born in 20 or 21 of July, 356BC in Pella, Macedonia and died in 10 or 11 of June 323BC (32 years old) with nobody sure with the cause of his death. Some say poisoning, some say mureder and many other reasons.
The power he held
- Had the whole known then world part of his giant empire
- Fought by the side of his army in 4 wars
- Did not lose a war for 15 whole years
- Tamed a horse that anyone else who tried to tame it failed (Bucephalus)
He did all this in his early 30’s :0
My personal opinion
I believe that Alexander the Great was one of the greatest parts of the GIANT history of Greece and i believe that he was very smart not only in strategy but genuantly a smart man cause he had one of the greatest teachers in history, philosopher Aristotle.
High jump is a great Olympic Athletic sport were the athlete has to jump up to a certain height by jumping. It is a very interesting sport that started in ancient Greece and still goes on until today!
The record at high jump that was made in 1993 by Javier Sotomayor was 2.45m! :O
A bit more info
High Jump need A LOT of skill and power to do it due to the fact that you need to jump a certain height and especially for professionals that jump over their own height most of the time.
You also need to be:
- tall (only to be easier to jump a height in comparison with your own height).
- strong on your legs
My personal opinion
My personal opinion on High Jump is that it is an interesting sport to watch. I tried it ones at my track practice and let me say that it isn’t at all easy as it looks.
One day me and my family were going to the beach to relax after a hard week. We packed our stuff and were ready to go.
While we were on the road everything was going a usual. I was arguing with my brother and our parents were ignoring us to not get ride of the joy of the beach holiday.
We were on the road and suddenly we heard something popping, it was our rear left tire. We were in the middle of the road with no signal on our phones, no one to help and a popped tire. So we thought of walking until we can find help. We ended up finding an abandoned gas station ⛽, we thought that it might have a tire somewhere so we looked for 20 minutes and we saw one but with one problem… IT WAS IN A HOLE LEADING TO A CAVE!!!
We thought things couldn’t get worst but things DID get worst. It got dark 🌑 and we were in an abandoned gas station with a tire inside of a hole leading to a cave! Because we weren’t dumb we didn’t go in the hole to get the tire and just waited at the car for help.
In the end a police officer found us and helped us.
Long jump is a great and interesting Olympic Sport. It needs the athlete to jump as far as they can, the athlete that jumps farther is the winner 🏆.
The worlds record for men is made by Mike Powell jumping a distance of 8,95m!
MY OWN SPECIAL EXPERIENCE
I myself do long jump and officially I am the best in Nicosia (2021) of my age at long jump. I managed to jump 4,99m it was very hard but i need to try and do more for my games from everywhere in Cyprus at the 5th of June. Wish me luck 🤞!
