And games took place on one sunny Sunday autumn morning. First gladiators warm their body with olive oil. They rub carefully olive oil on their muscles to make them fast, strong and long lasting. They check and wear their gears on and give their presentation for public…
Our fighters – Thraex, Myrmillo and Retiarius.
Myrmillo is ready for fight – young and maybe best years ahead.
Retiarius – maybe more experienced.
And Thraex who is the ringleader.
And combat begins – Thraex against Myrmillo!
And fight goes on evenly…
Thraex attacks fiercely but makes a mistakes… and loses his helmet!
Myrmillo is the winner. But crowd saves poor Thraex!
Now is the turn or Retiarius to challenge Myrmillo! And he takes the win!
But still – good experience for Myrmillo. Maybe he will be the new star after some years…
Now two experienced gladiators takes measure of themselves –
First Murmillo and Thraex circle each others trying to find weak points.
Retiarius charges Thraex rapidly and Thraex barely escapes from trident!
Retiarius throws his net but Thraex is ready ….
He graps the net and that means turnover for the match!
And Retiarus is beaten. He asks mercy fro crowds. And again people are merciful … he gets another chance!
Show is over! Good work!
It’s time to interview gladiator actors… From helmet one could estimate that blows really hit the target!
