Connection I Had

One connection I had is that the Romans were fearless and determined. I think that because The Romans didn't give up on trying to entertainment themselves. And I connect that to the Olympics. Because the people who are trying to get a gold medal in things have to be fearless and determined to be on top of their game and accomplish their goal. This is one connection I had.
