Diary of the gladiator

The diary of a roman gladiator

Today I was taken to Ludus magnus it is the biggest gladiator training school in Rome and it is part of the colosseum.

We have to train very hard and even though I am very big and strong I am worried about dying and I miss my family.

I had my first fight today it was awesome to walk out in such a large arena, people were cheering and shouting my name. I fought very hard and I was covered in blood. I felt bad when the crowd wanted me to kill my opponent, I whispered in his ear I am sorry and then gave a battle cry and stabbed him through the heart. The crowd went mad. Tomorrow I am fighting bears and tigers. 10 more fights and I win my freedom.
