Epic Family Journey

My visit to the Panathenaic stadium

My family and I ?‍?‍?‍? visited the Panathenaic Stadium. This stadium is in Athens, Greece. We went to visit the stadium because my brother and I wanted to go, we love everything about sport. We walked to get there, I know that you think this must have been a long walk, but we lived close by so it only took us 5-10 minutes, it was not very long!  We went around 10:00-11:00, but it was already super hot outside?.

The Panathenaic stadium was built during the 4th century BC, it’s very old! The stadium takes its name from the length of the track, a stadium measure about 185 meters. The place where spectators attended contained more than 68 000 places. The seats were all made in marble, so I guess it wasn’t very comfortable.

We went through a very special corridor because this was the place where all the Gladiators, lions? & Olympians have been walking to get in the stadium. My brother and I? had a race around the stadium race track, unfortunately I lost when I arrived in 2nd place?. But since my brother made a mistake by going into my line, we can say that I won the gold medal ?.

Although the Rio Olympic have just ended, we saw the Rio’s Olympic torch. It was beautiful and brilliant. We even took a picture! Here it is, just for you, the torch of Rio 2016 Olympic!
